      they want to talk because there are a lot of people who want to be involved, but it starts with a conversation and the most important thing to do is listen, so the person feels like they are being heard.  Then, don't be afraid to ask for what it is you want. (an answer or for them to volunteer and tell them that it is pretty easy to do)

      The other thing is, I know there are people who want to be involved, but they have to be invited to volunteer. Many people don't want to talk politics, but  a lot feel a need to do something. They are happy to be asked.
