Community Organizing Brown Bag– 7 Principles of Community Organizing

Community Organizing can be holding a rally or circulating a petition, but it is also much more than that. Come join ICPJ Director Chuck Warpehoski as he presents seven core community organizing principles that he has used over the last 18 years of work in the field. Bring a lunch and learn how he uses concepts such as “organizing is about relationships,” “focus on action,” and “meet people where they are” to build movements for social transformation. Whether you’re a veteran activist or just thinking of getting involved, this workshop will provide you useful information about how to make a difference.
