Hi all, 

Here are the scheduled workshops for March. I will send info about ones in
May and June closer to those dates.

I'll hope to see some of you at OLA when I present a workshop there.

 

Citizen Advocacy 101 - Making Change Happen

Want to improve life for yourself and your neighbors or have a concern about
local, state or federal laws? Learn about strategies for change, and more:
Brief historical perspective; Examples of successful advocacy; Choosing your
battles - What matters to you?; Who makes the rules?; Getting heard: tools
for change; "Tracking" civic/political issues. State legislature is in
session. What is going on and how to make your mark.

 

Sat. March 4           1:00-2:30 Oregon City Library, 606 John Adams St,
Oregon City

 

Misinformation and Political Propaganda 

We are overwhelmed with messages from politicians, news sources and other
media. Learn to distinguish truth from fiction using critical thinking
strategies. The workshop uses real world examples of political ads, news
headlines, logical fallacies, graphs / charts, the effect of word choice in
messaging, statistical data and other types of information in a "what do you
see here? / what is missing?" type of format. 

The last part is about finding accurate information. The goal is to help
people become their own "factchecker". 

 

Tues. March 14      6:00-7:30, Albina Branch MCL   3605 NE 15th, PDX

Sun. April 9            2:30-4:00 Central Branch MCL  801 SW 10th PDX
