We are pleased to offer an important workshop for you as a student leader on campus. A renowned scholar and social activist, Robin Leeds, will lead a workshop entitled: ‘Promoting the Vote: Inspired and Impassioned Issues.’ We invite you to participate as she works with you, a campus leader, on developing skills and ideas to lead your fellow students in social advocacy around topics that will engage us in achieving better voter turn-out. The workshop will be held on Thursday, September 10th from 5-6 PM.
You are one of a small group of students who are being invited to participate, and we ask that you please register for this opportunity by September 1.
After the workshop we ask that you then offer a similar workshop for another group of students. If you are currently working as a Community Leader, we recommend that you coordinate with the faculty in your assigned LC to offer one to the class. If you are the leaders of another campus group, you can work with them. These peer-to peer workshops should take place in a virtual form, to allow as many students as possible to attend. (IT can assist if you have questions about setting up a Zoom meeting with or without break out rooms.) Finally, please ensure that you conduct the workshops before October 20th in time for the upcoming elections; yes election day is November 3rd, but many students will be voting via mail, which needs to be done as much in advance to that date.
Please reach out to Dr. Ludwig and/or Dr. Scott with any questions. We look forward to your hearing from you and hope that you are able to participate!
