When someone forms a picture of organizing in their mind, they often think about protests and picket lines. While this is the most visible form of organizing in a community, it doesn’t paint a complete picture of what organizing means. Community organizing occurs when members of a community work together in small and big ways to promote the interests of their community. We want you to feel empowered to take those actions and even lead them in your own community. That’s why we offer programs, workshops, and self-paced trainings and resources to help you do this.
