UPCOMING TRAINING WORKSHOP: SATURDAY, OCTOBER 13th  from 9:00am-12:30pm  "Making Change: Basics of Organizing for Social Justice"  


Making Change: Basics of Organizing for Social Justice is a new workshop facilitated by RiseUp Social Action Training and Education. The training will provide a hands-on introduction to skills needed to organize effectively for social change on a campus and in the community. Building on basic conflict management skills, participants will learn how to identify stakeholders and potential allies, develop outreach strategies, and build a campaign of concern. The session, which will include roleplaying and other interactive learning exercises, will be valuable for newcomers and those already engaged in social action. Andy Mager and Jessica Maxwell of RiseUp Social Action Training and Education will facilitate the workshop. Andy and Jessica bring over 60 years of combined organizing experience in Central New York. They have worked with many social movements, including those for peace, clean energy, immigrant and worker justice, racial justice, economic justice, environmental protection and food justice.

Breakfast will be served! The workshop is FREE and open to all but registration is required.
