Making Change: Organizing for Social Change

When: Saturday, November 14, 2020 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Where: Virtual event via Zoom

Description:

The Making Change: Organizing for Social Justice workshop will provide participants with a hands-on introduction to the skills needed to organize effectively for social change in campus and community-wide environments. 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 training, which will include interactive learning exercises, will be an invaluable resource for both newcomers and seasoned organizers alike, and will help people assess how to move forward with organizing and their causes after this election.

Andy Mager and Waly Wane of RiseUp Social Action Training and Education will facilitate this workshop. 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.  Presented by the Conflict Management Center
