We are facing a challenging moment with the political course of our state, where much of our work and focus is pulled towards the Nov. 6th election.
Because many of our staff, facilitators and possible attendees for this training are working hard in this election, we are rescheduling our Community Organizing Skills Training for Dec. 7, 8 and 9th.
Our three-day Community Organizing Skills Training explores the core skills to organize and create systematic change in a group or community, keeping nonviolence as a foundation. This training is fully interactive and has direct application in each session. We use a combination of popular and experiential education, allowing participants to explore in a hands-on, direct manner, while also drawing out the expertise that the individual already has within.
Who should attend this Community Organizer Training?
Experienced and less-experienced organizers, activists, community leaders and any one who wants to learn what ‘community organizing’ is all about.
Topics covered include:
Roles of Social Change, Campaign Planning, Facilitating Meetings, Working with Media and an intro to Nonviolent Direct Action.
