"I loved getting practical, tangible tools that I feel I can carry into my work. I can very easily see myself using the tools [they] taught us." - 2011 Participant
The Advocacy and Organizing workshop series is seven-sessions facilitated by professional organizers from community partners and alumni, who introduce leaders to core theories, strategies and tools for being an effective community organizer on campus and off-campus. Whatever issues you are passionate about, these are the tools to understand and effectively contribute to a movement for social change. The group also builds relational bonds for cross-issue support and alliance. All sessions are required. Contact Ali Barker and Anu Singh if you have any questions.
