Led by RADNH Organizing Director Isaac Grimm and RAD Grassroots Organizer Heather Stockwell, our Whole Movement Organizing Training will provide an introduction to Rights & Democracy’s organizing model and dig into strategies for building grassroots power. This training is meant to be useful to seasoned activists as well as newly politicized community members interested in building their skills to positively impact our politics and our communities.
The training will provide important context and tools for building one’s own power in concert with a collective movement. Trainees will leave with a deeper understanding of RAD’s theory of change and a grounding in why and how to build local power and a local base of activists working and building relationships together.
Fill out this reflection form in order to prepare for this training and to help us shape the training for your needs.
