Something happens, and millions of outraged people take to the streets in powerful mobilizations that bring people from all walks of life together. Flash forward a few weeks later and people have moved on to the next issue. How many times have we experienced these powerful mobilizations, only to learn that there’s nothing to do next? How can we turn moments of outrage into meaningful, real, lasting power? Absorption is about giving people as many possible opportunities to take action. In this training, you’ll learn proven strategies for building leadership and deepening engagement at scale.

This training is best suited for advanced organizers who are looking to build power.
