This guide is intended as a tool for community organizers and teachers seeking ways to identify shared values, create a
common vision, and take collective action towards making communities more self-reliant, sustainable, and democratic.
- basic organizing skills for calling and hosting a public workshop;
- specific instructions for conducting the workshop;
- lessons learned from past workshops to avoid pitfalls and build on success; and
- ideas on how to follow up after the workshop and build on the momentum.
Start by reading the Lessons Learned section — it offers ideas for planning, conducting, and following up after your workshop. PLEASE CHECK BACK ON JANUARY 5th FOR AN UPDATED LINK TO OUR FREE COMMUNITY ORGANIZING MANUAL.
