    Deep Canvassing: How to Talk to Help People Reconsider Conservative Policies

    Deep Canvassing: How to Talk to Help People Reconsider Conservative Policies

    Hey all today we are going to unpack the idea of Deep Canvassing. Inspired by this article https://callhub.io/deep-canvassing/




    Deep canvassing stems from a simple idea; you can change minds through conversations. Canvassers use this method to engage voters in a conversation and get them to a mutual understanding by providing alternative perspectives.




    It is a two-way conversation between canvassers and voters where voters are asked to share their personal experiences around the issue being discussed.




    The strategy lays out:




    Share your experience and get the conversation startedListen to voters, get them thinking and sharingHighlight common humanity



    We will talk about what it is, how to use it, when it goes well and when it doesn’t.




    We wil also use it to unpace these ideas:




    Life is too stressful – lets vote for boring




    Tax Reform said we were to average 4K back – did you get it – yeah me neither!




    The efforts for Stimulus for real people – who pushed that?




    Do you feel safer or more scared now – with all the current racial rhetoric (NOTE this is not about if he is racist or not – its about feeling safe and who is responsible)




    How are you feeling about COVID-19 are we getting better or worse. If getting better who is pushing the better efforts?




    If concered about Debt – who is really better at debt?




    How do you feel about global perspective?




    Who has a plan for the economy and who just hopes it gets better because it is “now open”?




    Who is honest with us and is willing to tell us the bad news we need to hear?




    Name one way your life is better now?

    Why does Society Have Such a Hard Time Admitting Black Lives Matter?

    Why does Society Have Such a Hard Time Admitting Black Lives Matter?

    In this podcast we will analyze thoughts on why people have such a hard time just saying and agreeing with Black Lives Matter. And why they are SO insistent on the message All Lives Matter.




    The secret is we will in a society that honestly values life very little. And due to the normalization of death and that some lives matter and other lives don’t means that people are subconsciously aware their life doesn’t account for much in our society. We will look for these messages analysis them and then see why this statement is “seen” as provocative.




    Lastly we will look at the concept of positionality to see why starting with the idea that Black Lives Matter is really where we want and need to start – to create the hope that one day All Lives really will Matter.

    Lessons in Pressure, Movement, and Purpose

    Lessons in Pressure, Movement, and Purpose

    In this podcast we breakdown another parable idea on what lessons are embedded in boats, and airplanes. How can we look at the idea of difference in consideration of an items intended purpose and see its inherent value in its differences? We will look at how the pressures of a situation keep us afloat. We will look at how movement and pressure can uplift us.




    We need to understand we are different. We also must embrace we each have a different purpose. These parable are lessons on learning to love ourselves and will help us see the inherent value of our differences.

    Why Poor White People Have A Hard Time Seeing White Privilege

    Why Poor White People Have A Hard Time Seeing White Privilege

    Todays Podcast is “Why Poor White People have a harder Time Seeing White Privilege”




    We will go over – white racial privilege does exists




    We will also talk about what is “assumed” as parts of being a white person in society – that really is not always the true experience




    We will talk about how if you are not doing what is assumed in all parts of whiteness – how you as that white person are put down.




    Using terms I heard from people in the white side of my family heard all the time like: White Trash, Redneck, Hillbilly, Trailer Trash etc And how these punishments on intersectionally oppressed white people (White people who are: Poor, Not Heterosexual, College educated, Urban, Not Able etc) are spit on and harassed from people in society and at times on both political spectrums!




    Its a deep one for sure!

    Social Centric Communalism

    Social Centric Communalism

    Hey all so this is our final podcast of season one folks. Its been wonderful for Calvin and I to share our thoughts and ideas with you everyone. In this our final podcast of our first (hopefully not final season) Calvin the Drapetomaniac and Rowdy the Inclusive Activist introduce the idea of Social Centric Communalism (NOT communism NOT Socialism) Communalism. Living in peace and harmony with our eco-sphere with all our relations and putting WE ahead of importance to me.




    Imagine a world where everyone had your back and best interest at heart. Imagine a world where everyone believed there was more than enough for everyone. Imagine a world where we recognized our siblings and relations with the water, the soil, the wind, the sun, the rain and the plants.




    In short friends if we want to make it through this world alone – frankly there is never “enough” to be truly safe and secure.




    With that if this podcast series has been of benefit to you – please share it with a friend. Rate and review us on your favorite podserver application of choice – Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher.

    On Truth

    On Truth

    In today’s podcast we explore the idea of “truth” what is it. What is subjective truth or what is true for me. How can at times subjective truths widen and are shared with others? What is objective truth – those real hard undeniable truths – that we can pretend don’t exist – but like gravity we do so at our own peril. What are universal truths – to go even deeper what are universal human values – do they even exist?




    In this podcast I welcome special guest Dr. Kelly Fitzsimmons Burton Philosophy Faculty at Paradise Valley Community College on to talk about these notions and ideas. Is truth dead? Or is it still alive and unavoidable – lets find out!




    As always if this made you think of something interesting I would love to hear from you. You can email me at inclusiveactivism@cox.net or message me directly on social media or on the inclusive activism pages. And for more about me and the goals of the podcast visit www.inclusiveactivism.com
