Do you have friends and family who buy into “The Big Lie” about the election, COVID conspiracies, and Qanon? Are you ready to defend truth and defeat disinformation?

Join us for our three-part “Talk it Out” Communications Bootcamp, hosted in partnership with ProgressPA.

Each training builds on the last, and we encourage you to attend all three. Sessions will be recorded and made available to those who register, so you can catch up if your schedule conflicts.

Minimum suggested donation of $10 for each 90-minute training, or $30 for all three. Please use the donation form on this page, then register for each Zoom event below:

Talk It Out, Part 1: Values Speak Louder Than Lies.

Thursday, April 8, 2021 at 7:30pm EST. RSVP HERE.

We begin by getting in touch with the moral core that motivates us and crafting values-centered messages that are viscerally persuasive, inarguably powerful, and leave a lasting impression. In the end, the fight is more about values than it is about facts.

Talk It Out, Part 2: Making Truth Matter

Wednesday, April 21, 2021 at 7:30pm EST. RSVP HERE.

How do demagogues poison hearts and minds? How does indoctrination happen? How do we puncture it? Building on our values-based foundation, we offer strategies — and practice creating our personal stories that challenge dogma and make truth matter.

Talk It Out, Part 3: Vaccinated, Unindoctrinated, and MOTIVATED

Thursday, May 13, 2021 at 7:30pm EST. RSVP HERE.

As some normalcy returns, we will prepare to engage more freely with our fellow citizens — and also look ahead to canvassing. What are the issues and ideas to prioritize? It’s time to pull together the skills we’ve learned with interactive role-plays, practice rapid responses to common nonsense, and help each other hone our persuasive edge.

The HearYourselfThink Project is a 501c3 non-profit that defends American values of truth, reason, and the common good by exposing how demagogues tap into the reptilian mind to divide and conquer. We are 100% funded by small donations.
