The New Majority Organizing Academy trains people of all ages in grassroots community organizing. Community organizing is a strategy for social change. People attending the Academy's trainings will learn the nuts and bolts of effective organizing tactics, like political education, 1-on-1 meetings, group meeting facilitation, direct action planning, and more. You may also learn how to develop a winning, issue-based campaign strategy, and how to design campaigns that can both create short-term improvements in the lives of people in your community and lead to long-term social change.
Attendees that have learned to organize through electoral campaigns and canvassing will learn how about the differences between electoral field organizing and community organizing. The New Majority Organizing Academy is creating a wave of new organizers to help fight for a progressive future for Virginia!
The Academy is hosting a 3-day Organizing Intensive Training from April 5-7, 2013.
A small number of qualified candidates will be invited to participate in a 2-week Organizing Immersion Program in May, and will be eligible to apply for full time organizing staff positions with Virginia New Majority afterwards.
Women and People of Color are strongly encouraged to apply. Preference will be given to applicants who are interested in working in Virginia in the long-term.
This training costs $35. Once you have registered, please pay here: http://bit.ly/nmoa3day
