Impactful Conversations Training: Swing Left MN-02

  • Macalester College, Olin Rice Hall Room 250 166 South Macalester Street Saint Paul, MN, 55105 United States (map)

Please join the Swing Left MN-02 action team as we learn about impactful communication from local activist Grace Kelly.

If each one of us who believed in compassionate good government persuaded just one other person, then we could change the world. Kelly will offer a method of persuasion that is more like making new friends. It works at doors and Thanksgiving meals. It is all about conversation. The right question can change more than the weightiest fact. It is a way to have fun and be effective. We will also discuss basic canvassing and door knocking strategies for our Swing Left efforts to get out the vote in MN-02 in 2018. Grace Kelly is an expert in campaign strategy and persuasion from the blue island of success, Eagan-Burnsville in the red sea of CD2. Kelly's background stretches from being a small business owner of the Pet Barbers to being the IT guru of financial systems for Chevron. When she became an activist, she became a specialist in persuasion. She studied and experimented on how to change minds. Now she wants to share that with everyone.

If you haven’t heard of it, Swing Left is an online network that helps people find their closest Swing District in Congress and connects them with actionable volunteer opportunities to support progressive candidates in that District. Our goal is simple: to flip the House in the 2018 midterm elections and put a check on the Trump agenda. Sign up and learn more at
