This training will empower candidates, advocates, and communicators in a variety of fields to engage in today’s broadly intersectional conversation on immigration. Join us and learn to anticipate right-wing attacks, emotionally counter opposition narratives, and proactively frame the debate. The content is rooted in an unprecedented effort by pro-immigrant communicators to identify proven, people-centered, and powerful messaging lessons from 100+ public opinion studies by 62 organizations since 2016. The bottom line: progressives don’t need to avoid talking about complex issues like immigration in order to win. When we message to meet our audience’s emotional and informational needs, they come along with us.
