Organizing For Change

Last night American Friends Service Committee facilitated an Atlanta Free School work shop on the basics of community organizing. 

Together we learned about tried and true effective activist strategies for organizing folks in your community to build the power we need to win. There is much wisdom to pick up from organizing tools of the past as we look to build the movements of the future.

We eplored strategies for base building, developing appropriate targets, strategies to neutralize or move opposition, understanding the spectrum of allies and opponents and developing short and long term goals.

We had a good mix of folks who want to get into activism or get involved with communities, causes, movements, newbie organizers, and experienced organizers looking to learn new info or brush up on their org skills. 

We also had hot chocolate:)
