Organizers: Building Communities to Take Action
Organizing for Action is mobilizing and training the next generation of progressive leaders. We work every day to empower a network of thousands of grassroots volunteers across the country to create the change they seek—whether that’s standing up for sensible gun legislation, protecting Obamacare, acting on climate change, or protecting immigrants’ rights.
But organizing isn’t just knocking on doors and making calls—it’s understanding real people, hearing their personal stories, and building trust in the long term.
In our current political climate, we must challenge ourselves and each other to design more inclusive, empowering, and representative spaces (both physical and digital) in order for relationship-building and storytelling to take place to encourage more effective action.
