The Democratic Womens Club of Sarasota County has raised funds to create a scholarship program for local students and young professionals! They will be selecting two young women and sending them to Heather Booth’s Midwest Academy for Organizing Social Change. These two scholarship winners will fly out to Chicago April 20-24, 2020 and learn effective community organizing techniques from influential social activists.
This five-day training provides concrete skills as well as a framework for thinking about how to do effective progressive organizing. The tools are compatible with a wide variety of organizing models, and provide a framework for critical and constructive thinking about how to achieve the goals of your particular organization, constituency, issue mix, and social and political context.
