Our Freedom, Our Fight: We & Goliath Helps NARAL Pro-Choice America Host First-Ever Activists’ Summit

Sens. Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren, and Jeff Merkley along with U.S. Senate Candidate Jaime Harrison and Progressive Movement Leaders to Join Hundreds of Reproductive Freedom Voters for Virtual Summit

WASHINGTON, DC — NARAL Pro-Choice America is hosting its first-ever Activists’ Summit, “Our Freedom, Our Fight,” this weekend (Saturday, August 8 and Sunday, August 9) to engage, train and mobilize hundreds of NARAL members as NARAL ramps up its voter contact efforts in the final 80+ days before the election. NARAL President Ilyse Hogue and other NARAL leaders will be joined by Senators Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren, and Jeff Merkley, along with U.S. Senate candidate Jaime Harrison and leaders and experts in the progressive movement.

The summit aims to educate, engage, and empower reproductive freedom activists and supporters from every part of the country, giving them the tools they need to fight back against attacks on abortion access and elect champions for reproductive freedom. The summit will feature workshops on core campaign tactics like hosting voter contact parties, phonebanking, and combating political disinformation.

The Activists’ Summit is the latest effort in NARAL’s largest-ever electoral program that plans to invest $34.7 million toward integrated organizing, communications, digital, and political programs designed to target races up and down the ballot across several key states in this consequential election cycle. NARAL has shifted its organizing entirely to a virtual format in the face of the still-raging COVID-19 pandemic and over the past five months, NARAL organizers and volunteers have hosted voter contact parties, phone banks, happy hours, and fireside chats with NARAL-endorsed candidates for elected office.

We & Goliath is proud to support NARAL with virtual event production and management for their first-ever virtual conference.


NARAL Pro-Choice America and its network of state affiliates and chapters are dedicated to protecting and expanding reproductive freedom for all. For more than 50 years, NARAL has worked to guarantee that every woman has the right to make personal decisions regarding the full range of reproductive choices, including preventing unintended pregnancy, bearing healthy children, and choosing legal abortion. Since 1969, NARAL has made history, grown to over 2.5 million members, and met the moments that have defined this fight with action, power, and freedom. In recognition of its work defending our constitutional right to choose, Fortune Magazine described NARAL as “one of the top 10 advocacy groups in America.”

The #1 Secret to Get You & Your Team to Write More Blog Posts

Are you an individual who knows the power of blogging, but find it challenging to go from thinking to writing? Or a company or nonprofit full of subject matter experts, but can’t get them to write for you?

Want to know the secret to a steady stream of content for your blog? Well, this might be the answer to all your worries:

Write your blog post titles in advance.

You/your writer(s) could do this yourself for a small blog, but for a large multi-author blog, I’d recommend you have a dedicated “Title Guy/Girl” aka “Director of Blog Post Idea and Title Generation”. In other words, assign one person to the task of coming up with a ton of great article ideas and titles and sharing them with your writers.

Why You Need to Write Your Blog Post Titles in Advance

Write your own blog? Now you’ll have a list of inspiring titles ready to go!
Have a multi-author blog? Tell your writers what to write and they’ll be more productive.

Not convinced yet?

Here are two incredibly important reasons why you should give your blog writers titles in advance:

  1. Many writers struggle with not knowing what to write about
    1. could be writer’s block
    2. your blog categories may seem too broad
    3. they’re confused on what’s allowed
    4. should they write about themselves, your company, your product, other people
  2. The title is unbelievably important for getting people to read and share the articles

Having one or two people create a big list of catchy titles will address both of these core issues, leaving you some awesome benefits:

Cure Writer’s Block

If you give a subject matter expert a list of great sounding titles, at the least, they’ll appreciate the time-saving suggestions, and at best be instantly inspired by the possibilities and flooded with ideas.

For example, I volunteer for a non-profit who got dozens of their volunteers to agree write but not a single one sent in an article in 6 months. Why? Probably these issues under #1 above were leaving them without the clarity to get started. One writer told me “I would have acted on it a long time ago if they’d have given me something to work on.”

Confusion stops people in their tracks. Clarity generates action.

Get Killer Titles!

Writing titles is a skill upon itself. Not every writer is great at coming up with catchy and engaging titles. Yet, it of such utmost importance that it cannot be overlooked. I’ve heard it said that on average, 8 out of 10 people will read headline copy, but only 2 out of 10 will read the rest. So without a good title you might as well not even write the post.

BONUS: Improve your Search Engine Rankings

Furthermore, having a great title makes it MUCH more likely that people will want to share your blog post with their friends. Social media shares bring you traffic and help your search engine rankings.
