So you've got a meeting with your MP, MPP, MLA, or City Councillor to talk about basic income - but aren't sure how to go about it? This workshop will share some how-tos and best practices for advocating for a basic income with your elected officials - from how to get a meeting to key points to cover while you're there. Join advocates from the Basic Income Canada Youth Network and the Ontario Basic Income Network, and leave feeling excited and equipped for your next advocacy meeting. We are also thrilled to have with us special guest Ted McMeekin (former Ontario cabinet minister) to share with us a politician's perspective of what makes direct advocacy effective. We can't wait to see you there!
