If you've been through trainings (facilitation, nonviolent direct action, organizing, etc) and want to learn how to lead them... If you're in the movement for the long haul and you can't imagine NOT doing social justice work... If you're interested in popular education and collective liberation...
Then this training is for you!
This weekend is intended for newer organizers and activists to deepen their knowledge and skills and connect with others doing different types of organizing around DC. Experienced local trainers will dive into an intense weekend of political education and discussion. You will leave with concrete skills for developing and leading your own workshops and trainings
You'll meet other people and leave better prepared to take on your role in building a better world. We're looking for people with a range of experience, but you should have *some* experience doing social justice work.
