Organizing for Power – Training to Enhance Community Organizing

From flyer:

“This event is truly in the spirit of “Grassroots Collaboration” and is intended to be a space for planning, sharing ideas, learning and collaborating on effective actions as we all move forward in this new era. While donations to cover materials are greatly appreciated, this event is free and open to everyone. Hosted by Tucson Water Protectors, however the information, discussions & ideas to be presented & discussed are meant to be applicable for activist groups involved in any range of issues and activism.”

“Please join us for this community training to work together to plan how we will organize in Tucson. In these tumultuous times we will begin to take our power back when we refuse to go along, when we no longer cooperate with the injustice. This is a choice. When we see power as an exercise of choices, we begin to see that every day, every moment gives us an opportunity to exercise our power and that our choices become opportunities to either liberate or oppress.

Strategic campaigns are an important part of building a movement. They focus our energy on the forces that need to be changed, and can often result in some victory (big or small) or mitigation of damage. These efforts require participation and creativity. As we build power through campaigns, we model what can happen when we work together inspiring others and igniting imaginations that feed more and more organizing.

We invite individuals and coordinators of community groups in Tucson to participate in this event hosted and sponsored by the Chukson (Tucson) Water Protectros. There will be a potluck for lunch so please bring a dish to share and your own bowl and utencisl/cups and come even if you don’t prepare anything!

Donations are gladly accepted and recommended $5-$20 and NOBODY will be turned away for lack of funds!”
