Moving from Issues to Action - Training on Community Organizing

August 08 2017 at 16:00 pm     Mintz Levin, One Financial Center Boston, MA 02111

Join us for an evening workshop that will provide best practices for organizers to effectively advocate and advance issues that impact the Latino community.

You will learn how to organize at the grassroots and grass tops levels, build alliances with other organizations and advance policy issues at the highest levels. You will learn strategies for addressing social issues such as civil rights, voting rights, education, hate crimes legislation, health care legislation, immigration, and 2020 census.

Our Presenters will discuss why these issues matter to the Latino community, and will map out a process of civic engagement, as well as short and long-term tactics to be most effective. You will learn how to define your cause and vision, create specific goals and metrics, find your allies and targets, build a base, find media coverage, and funding.
