Come join the flaxroots community that is the Green Party while we hear from two 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 26th of September, we'll meet on Zoom at 1pm to have a discussion on the important topic of housing with our candidates:
-Ricardo Menéndez-March is a longtime activist, current organiser for Auckland Action Against Poverty, and Green Party candidate standing in Maungakiekie.
-Jessamine Fraser is a practising architect and also teaches Architecture at Unitec. She stood for the Greens in the Whau local board and is standing as a Green Party candidate in Kelston.
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 (with the latest version of Chrome downloaded)
-Preferably headphones with a mic, but okay to use computer speakers if your room is quiet
Thank you so much for your time! We're looking forward to seeing you online on Saturday the 26th of September at 1pm :)
