Description

Green Corps and St. Olaf Present… Organizing for Social Change Workshop!

“Sustaining your campaign to victory: How to build a lasting campaign and incorporate new tactics to win”

Come to this alumni and student leader led community organizing workshop to learn to plan and carry out strategic efforts to make social change. As change-makers, we’re often told “NO” by those with decision making authority. This workshop will focus on strategic tactics to change your decision maker’s self interest and win your demands. These skills are highly applicable for all campus, community or political organizing and social justice minded students who desire to further their skills as social change agents.
