We did it! Last night was our first Regional Skill Up with the 350 Washington Network. Thank you to everyone who joined us for this timely conversation about movement building and volunteer engagement, and thank you to Shemona Moreno of 350 Seattle for sharing with us.

I loved hearing these ideas that are working at your local groups:

  • Phone calls to check in with people and recruit

  • Events like a virtual shoe strike (9/25) climate trivia night (10/30)

  • Have a sign in spot on the website. Get back to the people soon.

  • Develop stronger partnerships with other orgs

  • Book/article discussion group is a great way to recruit volunteers interested in a topic like race/transpo

  • Using combo of zoom and virtual meetings to bring people in alongside in person meetings once safe to do so

  • Book/article discussion groups as a great way to recruit volunteers interested in a topic like race/transpo

  • 1:1 phone calls can help people connect

  • Tabling at events, especially colleges; when we can again

Here is the link to our video and slides and chat document

And here are your resources!

There is so much more to talk about and dig into as we learn how to build this movement at each of our local groups and together across the region!

Whether you need some support figuring out how to use the Action Network autoresponder well, or setting up a volunteer opportunity document on your own group’s website, or just want to talk to someone about how to prioritize volunteer engagement in your team, I am here to support you.

We know we have the skills, talent, and resources within our network, and we get to work together to help your local group thrive.

PS, Join us next Monday night for our special guest, Roberta Giordano of the BlackRock’s Big Problem campaign! BlackRock is the biggest driver of climate chaos that you have never heard of. It is the world’s largest money manager with over $7 trillion of assets under management, and the world’s largest investor in fossil fuels and agribusiness companies that are driving deforestation and violating indigenous rights and territories across the globe. Learn about how the BlackRock’s Big Problem campaign has been pressuring the giant to act on climate and how your group can plug in.
