The curriculum for this Organizing Institute training was developed in collaboration with senior staff from partner unions. It's designed to give organizers a chance to step back from the day-to-day responsibilities and think about strategic planning and long-term goals to win power for the working class. This training will help organizers with field experience take on greater responsibility for planning, leading—and winning—successful campaigns.

The workshop focuses on:

  • Critical thinking skills;
  • Creating plans that build momentum;
  • Articulating plans to justify choices;
  • Strategies for leading teams through decision making and planning.

There is a special focus on thinking through community allies and strategies outside the workplace and applying core organizing principles to different ground models.

The cost is $150, and attendees must be selected and sponsored by their union. For more information, contact Lynn Rodenhuis, director of the AFL-CIO Organizing Institute.
