Trainings

We train organizers with time-tested tools that build people power, grow strong organizations and governing majorities, and transform communities.

Our Trainings

We believe organizing is both a science and an art, and that there are fundamental principles and techniques that organizers should practice and master. We’ve spent the past 50 years ensuring organizers develop the concrete skills, aligned with a vision for justice, needed to build democratic organizations, governing majorities, and powerful social movements. 

Whether in person or online, our methodology seeks to create a learning community with varied exercises that speak to the different ways participants engage with the material.
