Come join the flaxroots community that is the Green Party while we hear from some of our amazing candidates about issues affecting New Zealand today. After a brief kōrero, we'll do some phonebanking from home using the online platform CallHub so we can reach out to voters to hear about what matters to them, and talk about why they should Party Vote Green. Since we still need to protect each other while maintaining social distancing, phonebanking is the primary way we'll be able to contact voters before the October election, so your dedicated volunteering is more important than ever before!
On Saturday the 12th of September, we'll meet on Zoom at 10:30am to have a discussion on the importance of direct action activism with some of the Green Party candidates currently leading by example as part of the team participating in sit-ins to prevent the clearing to native trees on Canal Rd:
-Luke Wijohn is a climate activist who was one of the leaders of the school climate strike, standing as a candidate in Mt Albert.
-Steve Abel is a lifelong environmental activist, standing as a Green Party candidate in New Lynn.
Both the kōrero with the candidates and CallHub training will be via Zoom; CallHub is an online program, so there is no need to download anything in preparation. To participate, all you'll need is:
-Good internet connection
-Your own computer
-Preferably headphones with a mic, but okay to use computer speakers if your room is quiet

See you at 10:30am on Saturday the 12th of September. Thank you so much! :)
