Rethinking Democracy & Organizing for Change

This hands-on, interactive training is designed to equip community organizers and just plain disenfranchised Americans with knowledge and skills to understand how our democracy was hijacked, the human rights and values that lie at the core of real democracy, and how to take it back through designing an effective campaign.

Time: three 3.5-hour blocks (actual time varies depending on needs of participants).

Cost: $20 for the manual and associated documents. Links to videos and other resources also provided.

“Democracy is a work in progress­­­­ – it lives in the minds and hearts of ordinary citizens. It requires constant vigilance and constant work, but most people have forgotten the basic skills of “doing democracy.” ~ Riki Ott
