Organizers, Activists, and Volunteers, ages 16-100+, are invited to a series of workshops to develop core organizing skills and increase our capacity to work for Justice in Vermont.

This program explicitly supports The New Poor People’s Campaign, The Racial Justice Omnibus Legislation, Health Care is a Human Right, & The Ban New Fossil Fuel Infrastructure bill (soon to be introduced). Organizers, volunteers, and supporters of these and other campaigns are invited to participate in training to help them make the most of opportunities to coordinate and organize together.
We hope this will contribute to further silo breakdown and movement growth, and a successful organizing community.
