About the Event

Community organizing is a democratic strategy used by social movements, labor unions, under-represented communities, and marginalized groups to gain rights, win collective political power, and create positive change. It’s essential to achieving significant long-term change and vital in challenging the status quo. TAMV has successfully utilized organizing to:

  • Advocate for fair treatment of non-white youth at Big Phoenix Movie Theater (also added a diversity clause into their policy).
  • Worked with the ACLU to file and win lawsuits against McKeesport School District to start a Black Student Union (BSU) and the City of McKeesport for Sunshine Law Violations.
  • Assisted marginalized populations with navigating the court system through our victim advocacy program.

Part 1 of this virtual training series is open to anyone that wants to learn more about organizing for social justice and movement building. It will take place on August 21, 2021, from 1:00-3:00 and will cover:

  • the basics of community organizing
  • how to properly engage community residents
  • action planning & self-advocacy
  • power mapping
  • difference between social justice and black liberation
  • role of white allies and accomplices
