IQ3: How the Irish people said “Yes!”

In 2015, the Irish people said yes to marriage equality: the first country in the world to do so by referendum. How was this contentious vote won by a staggering 62%? Can we still make a nationwide case for progressive issues?
On 8 December 2016 Brian Sheehan wowed the IQ crowd with his portrayal of how the campaign for marriage equality in Ireland managed to persuade, reassure and mobilise voters – across generations – to create positive change.
