Will you have a conversation?

Friend -- "If you're tired of arguing with strangers on the Internet ... try talking with one of them in real life." That's former President Barack Obama at his farewell address last year, making the case for one of the simplest, most effective things we can do as engaged citizens: Have good conversations. Despite what some may think, communicating in a meaningful way isn't a "natural gift" that only certain people have. The ability to have an effective conversation is a learned skill -- and OFA and Swing Left are teaming up to teach it to supporters and volunteers across the country: my.ofa.us/Have-Effective-Conversations Together, we're offering a free, five-part series to help people have more effective conversations -- how to be a better listener, communicate why something is important to you, and make the case for your argument. We'll focus on talking to others about the health of our democracy and our future, and how we can use these effective conversations to get people involved in the issues that matter to them. (At the very least, we'll make sure you're prepared for those holiday conversations with your extended family members).
