What is a Political Potluck?
As part of Voting Block, we’re organizing “Political Potlucks” in neighborhoods across the Garden State to spark constructive conversations about politics ahead of the election. And we want you to be a part of it.
We like to think of them like block parties, where you get to break the cardinal rule of party etiquette: you get to talk about politics.
The premise is simple: Invite your neighbors or friends to your house, favorite restaurant or anywhere that can host a group meal. You can ask guests to bring their favorite dishes, fire up the grill or order in pizza. We will help you with the rest.
We’ve created this guide to help you host your own Political Potluck.
It includes step-by-step instructions on how to organize your event and guide a conversation along five discussion questions. By participating in a Political Potluck, you’ll inform our coverage of the governor’s race and spark healthier political discourse in the process.
