    Organizing 101

    Do you want to build or strengthen a movement you care about? Do you want to learn more about how political change happens and how you can get involved? Join Rising Organizers for a free training on the basics of grassroots organizing.

    We'll learn how to define and develop an effective organizing strategy and build a community of people to move it forward in an accessible, interactive environment. Since the 2016 election, Rising Organizers has trained over 1000 new and beginner activists. Our public trainings are designed to help groups and individuals expand their knowledge of community organizing, develop distinct goals, and learn how to make those goals a reality.

    This building is wheelchair accessible. There will be hardback chairs. If you have additional needs so you can participate fully in the training, please message Rising Organizers.
