The Training For Action is a community-generated, volunteer-organized, afternoon event designed to build capacity for emerging and seasoned activists alike. We’ll open the event with registration, a grab and go lunch, and speakers. Then there will be numerous workshops offered by sponsoring organizations and individual trainers. We’ll close with a fiesta with free food and music. In addition to food, we’ll also offer at no cost both childcare and Spanish-language interpretation throughout the event. Please share the event in Facebook.
We’ll have workshops in four learning areas:
1. Building Winning Strategies
2. Developing Tactics & Skills
3. Effective Solidarity Organizing
4. Learning to Talk about the Issues
SOME LOGISTICS: FOOD: We’ll have grab and go burritos and a New Mexican food buffet at our closing party. But please bring your own snacks and anything special you’d like to eat.
