Another way to garner a strong turnout for the Fall Assembly is to invite others to come. Please consider doing this. Here is a sample elevator pitch for inviting friends:
Will you join me at the online October 29th, 7pm Assembly of the Calgary Alliance?
I am a member of this Alliance, along with over 35,000 Calgarians, who are committed to creating a just and compassionate city.(Check out our shared work at https://www.calgarycommongood.org)
Our Alliance has had some great success stories in advocacy this year and we will gather online to mark these achievements. But, even more importantly, we will come together at this Assembly to advance the conversation about Calgary’s budget; its relationship to the future of our city and the way in which our city and our police force can move towards Truth and Reconciliation, through the expansion of the Indigenous Liaison program. Mayor Nenshi is scheduled to speak among many others. I do hope you can join me for this moving event.
Here is the link to the registration page for the October 29th assembly.
Please share this with like minded friends. Thank you!
