Strategic Conversations: Deep Engagement to Build Broader Support for Immigrants
Many of the deep divisions in America stem from misinformation, particularly about immigrants. Much of what an immigrant is today is constructed out of myths versus reality. Letting loose facts on the American public is insufficient in changing minds, however. Instead, sustained conversations, deep canvassing, positive framing and tapping into tested core beliefs are proven and effective ways to improve public opinion about immigrants.
Experts in deep canvassing, messaging, demographic change and conflict resolution held the free webinar Strategic Conversations: Deep Engagement to Build Broader Support for Immigrants on Tuesday, November 19 from 1:00 to 2:00 PM EST.
This webinar is for any member of the public, including educators, students, volunteers, immigrant- and refugee-serving professionals, researchers, law enforcement, local leaders and the media. A recording and resources are available here.
You will learn:
- Understanding the populations with misinformed views of immigrants
- The tested core beliefs that can positively reinforce your messages
- Strategies for conversations, canvassing and messaging that uplift public opinion on immigrants and immigration and pivot toward solutions and an alternative vision.
