Organizing & Leadership Workshop

  • Illinois Education Association 1555 Bond Street Naperville, IL, 60563 United States (map)

What's it about:

DuPage United will offer a series of three organizing and leadership development workshops (Thursday April 20th, Thursday April 27th, and Thursday May 4th). These workshops are designed for new and interested people, active leaders who have never attended a training offered by DuPage United or one of our sister affiliate organizations, and for those who feel like they need a refresher in organizing.

Topics to be covered include:

  • What is happening now in our body politic? Why? What are the traps we can fall into?
  • How to build power with a broad range of institutions. How to think globally and act locally around shared areas of common interest and concern.
  • Strategies to move from a problem—like incarceration of people with mental illness, affordable housing, gun violence, and other local concerns—to meaningful action that will produce real change.

Registration & Fees

Please register by sending your name, institution, and cell phone number to: $20 for non-member institution leaders. IEA members do not have to pay non-member fee. Please make payment upon arrival to DuPage Sponsors
