intro to organizing

Community Action Training (CAT) is a multi-day day intro to organizing training designed for organizers, activists and community leaders. Participants are energized and challenged during the weekend training that encourages folks to use the time and space to build relationships as we deepen our work in this current political moment. Topics include outreach, campaign strategy, direct action, grassroots fundraising and history of organizing. CAT’s are year-round and occur across the country.

CAT is a prerequisite for our summer Movement Activist Apprenticeship Program (MAAP). MAAP is an 8-week intensive program that offers a unique opportunity for aspiring BIPOC organizers to learn the nuts and bolts of organizing and what it means to organize through a racial justice lens and build power that shifts the conditions in our communities. Click here for more information about MAAP.
