TAMV Community Organizer Training
Time & Location
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:
