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 free food, we’ll also offer free childcare, and Spanish-language interpretation throughout the event.

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
