Do you know what a community organizer does? Have you ever wondered how the great social movements of the last century achieved social change? Would you like to learn the basics about how to organize and mobilize people to build power and win victories? Come join Corporate Accountability International and the Boston chapter of AmeriCorps Alums to learn about the principles of organizing and what makes a good organizer. In this workshop, you will learn basic principles of community organizing, how to identify a problem in your community and organize to solve it, and how you can plug into our existing campaigns to make change on a global level. Join us for some light refreshments, good company, and a hands-on, interactive workshop on how to build power and sustain it to win a campaign!
Corporate Accountability International is a people-powered organization that for more than 35 years has been waging and winning bold campaigns that safeguard public health, human rights, and the environment from corporate abuse. More at www.stopcorporateabuse.org.
