RSVP for #GetOrganizedBK’s “Organizing Bootcamp” on March 27th
For our next #GetOrganizedBK full-group meeting on Monday, March 27th, we’re trying something different: an “Organizing Bootcamp” to help build the organizing skills we need for the long haul. So many of you have stepped up to take leadership at this critical moment. We want to share and build skills to keep that cycle of leadership & organizing going strong.
Monday, March 27th, 7 - 9 PM
Get Organized BK’s “Organizing Bootcamp”
Congregation Beth Elohim
To kick us off, we’ll hear from three inspiring progressive elected officials:
NYS Attorney General Eric Schneiderman
Austin City Council Member Greg Casar
Philadelphia City Council Member Helen Gym
Eric, Helen, and Greg are on the front-lines of work to resist policies hate, injustice, and corruption. And they are not only inspiring elected officials -- they are also seasoned community organizers. Along with organizers from MoveOn and the Working Families Party, they will help us understand how the tactics of community organizing prepare us for the long haul resistance (and make progress on issues of justice and democracy, too).
After their introduction, we’ll move into our first #GOBK “Organizing Bootcamp,” with a wide great range of skills/training sessions (offered by some fantastic & experience activists and trainers).
Please RSVP to reserve your spot for a training session now. Due to heavy demand, many of the sessions are already at capacity. But everyone is welcome for the opening session, and several of the workshops remain open. The "Overview of Community Organizing" session will be in the sanctuary, so is open to all.
