This weekend AFSC's Atlanta Economic Justice Program had the exciting opportunity to provide an organizing 101 workshop in Columbia South Carolina. The workshop was attended by a diverse number of organizational representatives that spanned an exciting spectrum of issue focuses. One of the themes of those attending was to importance of breaking out of issue and organizational silos.
The workshop was organized and sponsored by the Carolina Peace Resource Center.
Providing organizing trainings has always been a priority for AFSC and whenever possible we try to provide that service for groups trying to build in the South.
