Humanize Me 114: Lessons from a street canvasser

What can we learn from encounters with strangers on the street? On this week’s episode of Humanize Me, Roman Campolo stops in to talk about the experience of canvassing for Greenpeace on the streets of Los Angeles.

Included in this one:

  • The code of the streets and common acknowledgement between homeless people and street canvassers
  • Why climate change matters as an issue, and why we have a small period of time to make progress
  • It’s not the specific organization that matters, it’s movements that mobilize big groups of people
  • How faith in the idea of government, whether we like it or not, plays a role in our power to ‘do something’
  • What are the ultimate values of a community, or of a nation?
  • The best ‘stop lines’ for people on the street and how street work can cure social anxiety
  • How to engage with people authentically
