Test your skills: Play the Organizing Game

As we gear up for an important federal election, nothing is more important than getting out to doors, talking to people, hearing what they say, and building a movement for what we want.  Elections are about people, and getting people to vote is about organizing. 

The organizing game is a fantastic way to test your skills.  You can download the game or play it online in  English or in Spanish.  If you don't agree with an answer, no problem, just have a rationale for why you don't agree and test out what they recommend and what you think in real time as you canvass.  There is no absolute right answer in organizing, just figuring out good questions and listening.

If you want to know you developed this great game, it was developed by a group of organizations.  CompassPoint Nonprofit Services is the overall project manager and fiscal agent. Kinection is designing and developing the Organizing Game.  The Center for Third World Organizing is providing organizing content and expertise. The Waitt Family Foundation, the Marguerite Casey Foundation, and the Community Technology Foundation have provided funds for the project.

    Thank you for reading this story…

    More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.

    rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

    So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

    And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
