Event Details


Community Organizing 101 is a deep dive into the basics of grassroots organizing, political campaigns, and moderated dialogue. The easiest part of grassroots organizing is finding others who stand for the cause you do. We’ll show you how to turn that passion into action and action into real results by using the concept of Theory of Change to help you develop and prioritize actions in your community.

During the presentation, we will break out into groups for a hands-on experience putting what you have learned into practice. The instructor will guide you and provide constructive feedback to assure you have the foundation for creating the political outcome you want.


*Doors open at 6:30 PM, workshop starts at 7:00 PM sharp – If you’re late, you may not be able to join a group when we start. Refunds will not be provided to those who are late and cannot participate.*

This workshop is highly interactive so in addition to learning new skills and strategies, you will also have an opportunity to network with inspiring, like-minded people!
