It’s no secret that organizing is hard work. Talking with people, creating relationships, and building leaders is what has, and will continue to, advance our movement. We’re at a pivotal moment where we know the importance of high-attention, short-term events like elections, voter registration pushes, and Census outreach. Our challenge is molding these moments into long-term power-building opportunities for our communities. This training will cover the basics of the “leaderful” organizing model—including assessments, one-on-ones and more—and how to bring them all together into an effective, power-building organizing program that identifies and develops leaders to help scale progressive movements.
