About the Training:
The ‘Organizer Training 101: Building & Maintaining The Committee’ is one of the most comprehensive trainings of its kind aimed towards rank and file workers, union members, and worker organizers.
The two-days of content is more than most advanced training programs. It’s a great opportunity to inspire workers and provide the the basic tools needed to organize so we can live and practice the idea of “every worker a leader.”
More than anything, the training is about giving workers the confidence they need to begin organizing with their fellow workers.
Participants: 10 – 20 expected. 25 Max.
