Grassroots Organizing 101

From an email:

Grassroots Organizing 101, with Steve Max

June’s second Network conference call will allow you to discuss grassroots organizing with a real pro. If you’re considering this strategy for change-making for the first time, or if you are an experienced organizer but want to ask your best questions of our expert, Steve Max, then this call is for you.

Steve is founder and director of the Midwest Service Academy, which has trained over twenty-five thousand grassroots activists from hundreds of organizations and coalitions since 1973. Its book, Organizing for Social Change, is ‘the Bible’ of direct action organizing.

So please plan to join us this Friday (June 13th) to discuss the power of savvy organizing and how to use it to transform your organization’ s ability to effect change.

When: Friday, June 13th, 2 pm Eastern, 11 am Pacific
Dial 616/ 883-8400 at the appointed time (normal long distance rates apply)
Enter Access Code 452001681#
Email your questions for Steve in advance or during the call to: grassroots (at) orionsociety (dot) org

Hope you can join us, and please share this message with anyone on your staff or board who can make use of this mini-workshop. And the next call, for your calendar, is:

* Boards of Directors: Part 2: Creating Board Expectations, June 25th , with Amy O’Connor of Integrated Development Consulting, Inc.
