UNITED KINGDOM ONLINE: Community Engagement Empower Hour
The Dramatists Guild invites you to get EMPOWERED to take action. This event is free and open to everyone.
Many of us are feeling passionate about racial injustice, our climate crisis, government funding, queer/trans rights, and many other issues. Unfortunately, an action that can be done at any time often gets done at no time. That’s where the Empower Hour comes in.
The Zoom meeting Empower Hour will begin with a round-robin greeting. Then, for the next hour and a half, participants will take part in some of these community engagement activities:
- Sign petitions;
- Call or email MPs and other government officials;
- Read suggested articles or studies to educate yourself on ongoing issues;
- Research or find ways to become involved with community engagement organizations;
- Register to volunteer;
- Compile resources and/or author something to support your views and promote visibility;
- Decorate a sign, banner, or other public display of support of your issue or view of choice;
- Make art!
- More! There are no rules. Just come with the intention to get together and take action.
We will end with a twenty minute sharing of resources and experiences.
NOTE: This event is non-partisan. Members are encouraged to take action on any topic about which they are passionate, without regard to political party affiliation.
Join together to defeat procrastination and spur activation. Bring your own action items or, just bring yourself, your passion, your phone, and your computer. Any member not sure about where to start will be paired with a volunteer to help them select an activity in their area of interest.
Everyone is welcome!
