This seven-part series of organizing skills and theory will start on Thursday, May 6th and run every other Thursday from 5:30-7:30pm through July 29th. Workshops will focus on building some of the basic skills needed for community organizing and building grassroots power. The series will be focused on applying skills to SMWC’s practice, but friends of SMWC are welcome to–we’re building a movement! Sessions will build off each other, so we encourage people to attend all sessions, however it’s okay to come to one, a few, or all. The workshops will be held on Zoom to be COVID safe and accessible to people across the state.
