Workshop: Change the World: Organizing for Social Justice
Time & Location
About the Event
The workshop will be facilitated by Aly Wane and Andy Mager of RiseUp Social Action Training and Education. It is being presented as part of the Conflict Management Center’s ongoing workshop series at Syracuse University.
The training will provide a hands-on introduction to skills needed to organize effectively for social change on a campus and in the community. Participants will learn to identify stakeholders and potential allies, develop out reach strategies and build a campaign on issues of concern to them.
The session, which will include interactive learning exercises, will be valuable for newcomers and those already engaged in social action.
Andy Mager and Aly Wane of RiseUp for Social Action will facilitate the workshop. Andy and Aly bring over 60 years of combined organizing experience in Central New York. They have worked with many social movements, including those for peace, clean energy, immigrant and worker justice, racial justice, economic justice, environmental protection and food justice.
The workshop is FREE, simple lunch provided, and open to all. Registration is required. To register, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Let them know what academic department/community organization you are with, if you require any special accommodations
