We have another campaign session this Thursday at 6pm. It would be great to see you again and continue our discussion, so if you want to register, please head to voicesforscotland.scot/events.
At the last meeting the key points we discussed were
People are looking for resources:
Techniques for useful conversations
Questions to ask of others
Looking to identity Voices USP
Some movement coordination
Create a space for the ‘maybe’ camp
Space to explore the options
Build confidence in speaking to other people
Stay “top line”, not too much detail – stick to the emotional and what matters to us as individuals
Look at output from citizen assembly
Changing conversations within the movement to be relevant to where we are and what we need to do to grow support
Elevator pitch to be used for Be A Voice.
We need tools to act and a place to go.
At the upcoming meeting we can discuss some of these points. I have attached a toolkit that we produced and were just about to launch before the pandemic hit. This clearly needs updated, so it would be good to know how you think it needs changed. We can focus on the toolkit, have a look at the Citizen Assembly work, I can give a bit of an update on movement coordination and we can chat again about our ‘elevator pitch’ for indy – I’m going to spend a bit of time today and tomorrow updating the Be A Voice section of the VfS website.
A lot to get through but we’ll ensure there’s plenty of space for discussion.
Given the media coverage of everything that’s happening within the SNP at the moment, the meeting may also be an opportune time to discuss the benefits of an independence campaign away from party politics and using ‘Yes/No’ labels.
Finally, this email is coming to you because you attended one of our campaign sessions, it would be good to decide whether you want to create a campaign/action ‘group’, leave things on an ad-hoc basis and/or be added to a campaign group email list. There’s no expectation or responsibility to do anything as part of a campaign group, but it might help us, as a collective, become more organised.
Thanks so much and hopefully see you all soon.
