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 Sunday the 6th of September, we'll meet on Zoom at 10:30am to have a discussion on labour and migrant rights with three Green Party candidates who have a longstanding track record of advocacy with those issues:
-Golriz Ghahraman is a human rights lawyer and current Green Party MP, standing as a candidate in in Mt Roskill.
-Ricardo Menéndez-March is a labour rights activist, standing as a Green Party candidate in Maungakieie.
-Lawrence Xu-Nan is an educator and immigrant rights activist, standing as a Green Party candidate in Pakuranga.
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
