Are you a basic income supporter looking to take your advocacy to the next level? Do you ever feel frustrated by the news and wish you could have your voice heard?
Have you considered writing letters to the editor, but aren't sure how to take the first step? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then this workshop is for you!
Join the Ontario Basic Income Network (OBIN) and the Basic Income Canada Youth Network (BICYN) on February 22nd (7-8:30 EST) for this practical, hands-on, interactive session on writing letters to the editor as basic income advocates in Canada.
We'll cover what letters to the editors actually are and why they're so important, the process of writing and submitting them, what makes a good letter, and tips and tricks for writing impactful letters to your local media outlet and getting them published. In addition to the "how," participants will leave with practice writing letters - come ready to write and put your ideas down on paper!
This workshop is open to all. Zero writing experience is required - the idea is to break down how to write letters to the editor and encourage those who may not have done it before to give it a try. However, we are assuming that those attending have some background knowledge in basic income - this isn't a "basic income 101" workshop. If you want to brush up on your basic income knowledge before the workshop, Basic Income Canada Network's primer series is a great place to start.
Looking forward to seeing and writing with you on February 22nd!
