Even though nearly every major newspaper’s editorial board has championed voting rights, voting rights advocates struggle to achieve proactive policy wins. Why is that? ReThink Media analyzed more than 4,100 articles; nearly 22,000 quotations; and over 600 million tweets, and combined this intelligence with three years of public opinion and messaging research from more than five leading research firms to figure out why and how to fix it. Come learn how we can re-center this most important civil right in the American political consciousness and build a better democracy for us all. We’ll learn how to reframe our messages to better reach the public through themes and values that move people to listen to and act with voting rights advocates.

This training is best suited for people who talk about voting rights in their daily work.
