The importance of language in political messaging cannot be overstated. In politics, every word counts. A successful campaign can hinge on the artful construction of messages that resonate with voters. Political language is more than slogans; it can bridge the gap between political ideals and public perception. Note the regrettably misunderstood term “Defund the police.”

It behooves all of us to be conscious of the language we’re using and how it will be construed, when talking to others or writing Letters to the Editor. This program will help us fine tune our political messaging to make it most effective.

Our 3 speakers are with a non-profit called Words That W!N dedicated to teaching and promoting strategic messaging to win hearts, minds, and votes. WTW is an all-volunteer group, passionate about good messaging.
