In this moment of pandemic illness and loss of life, political paralysis and lack of leadership, economic upheaval, and long-standing racial injustice, how can ordinary people operating as talented leaders make meaningful change to better our communities, our cities, our states, and our country for their families? Participants will be invited to explore the universals of broad-based organizing, refined over the Industrial Areas Foundation’s 80-year history, as essential practices to address the critical issues of our day: containing the pandemic, criminal justice reform, wealth inequality, affordable housing, living wage jobs and the right to organize, immigrant rights, environmental racism and climate change, among many others. The training will be a mix of lecture, reading/small group discussion, and role plays.
