The Greens WA are registering to participate in Jane McAlevey's 'Organising For Power - Core Fundamentals' training. This interactive training is open to all and would be especially suited to those interested in getting more active and involved in building the Greens movement through campaigning and organising in the community.
"The world is burning, new and old conflicts are intensifying by the day, and the rich are getting richer than ever off the backs of an increasingly exploited global working class. For working people, the challenge is to use the strength of our numbers, to build majority-led disciplined structures that come together around shared goals and win the campaigns that we launch."
Our Core Fundamentals training focuses on how to do this. Across six weeks - in global plenaries as well as facilitated small group work, and through campaign practice assignments that we expect you to complete - we teach the five core fundamentals of organizing, each a crucial piece for building disciplined majorities capable of fighting and winning:
leader identification: understanding who can move people, and that it’s often not who you first think;
semantics: recognizing that the words we use matter - they must center each worker’s active participation as key to winning;
structured organizing conversations: preparing what it takes to win over the hardest-to-move leaders;
charting: incorporating a simple method to understand human social relationships, and to prioritize and systematize outreach;
structure tests: developing mini campaigns to build solidarity and site structure, and to know when you are ready to win.
Organising for Power's Core Fundamentals in a skills based training that takes place over six consecutive Thursdays from 9:00AM to 11:00AM, 9th February - 16th March.
Participants should be ready to commit to attending and participating in the majority of the 6 sessions. Registrations are free and close on the 30th of Janurary.
