Boots on the Ground Training
Rappahanock Indivisible—We the People will hold its monthly open meeting on Wednesday, August 15 to hear from Julie Emery, Executive Director of the Virginia Civic Engagement Table.
Emery will be presenting a 90 minute workshop entitled Boots on the Ground. This program combines a quick voter registration training with training on how to talk to voters one on one at the doors. Experience shows that there is nothing more effective at persuading people to vote
than having face to face conversations. But how one does it is critically important. This workshop will help all who attend to learn best practices and how to have fun while increasing
The Virginia Civic Engagement Table strengthens and connects Virginia's progressive nonprofit
organizations and activists and acts as a hub for the larger progressive community. It strives to engage underrepresented communities in the democratic process.
Emery was previously the state Political Director for Service Employees International Union Virginia 512. Her background includes over 20+ years in sales and marketing, much of it in the Caribbean and Latin American region, and a lifetime of activism in politics and progressive causes. Originally from Minnesota, she’s lived in Virginia with her family for 15 years.
The meeting will begin at 7:00 p.m. at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of the Rappahannock, 366 James Wharf Road in White Stone.
