How to Organize More Effectively for the Climate

March 3, 2020 - 6:30 PM


Sign up now for 6 exciting, practical workshops to help you organize more effectively for the climate. 6:30 pm every Tuesday, March 3 – April 7.

Six engaging sessions offer powerful insights, practical methods, and useful handouts:

  1. “The Power and Practicality of Nonviolence – What is Nonviolence?”
  2. “How to Strategize and Organize Effective Grassroots Movements”
  3. “Organizing 101:  Basic Nuts & Bolts of Grassroots Organizing”
  4. “Using Three Models to Devise Strategies to Strengthen the Climate Movement”
  5. “Empowering the Climate Movement”
  6. “How to Get Your Climate Message Out to the General Public”

To help participants discuss well, we’re limiting this to 15 persons. 

To register or ask questions, contact the facilitator, Glen Anderson (360) 491-9093 glenanderson@integra.net, and he will tell you the location.  If more than 15 want to participate we can schedule this series again later.

Each 2-hour session shares some of the smartest, most workable principles, strategies, methods and examples to help you build a much more effective nonviolent grassroots movement to make stronger progress solving the climate crisis. Instead of focusing on the climate’s technical scientific or economic information. these workshops will increase your skills and resources so you can organize more effectively for the climate.

The workshops can help people organize nonviolent grassroots movements for any issue. The group exercises for developing movement-building goals, strategies, outreach, messaging, etc., will focus on strengthening the climate movement.

Each session includes discussion and many practical handouts.  All six workshops are powerful and practical for experienced organizers and activists, as well as for people who are new to this.

Glen volunteers his time and invites voluntary sliding scale donations ($15-$20) to cover the cost of the many excellent handouts.  Low-income folks may participate for free.

The facilitator has been volunteering for peace and social justice continuously since the 1960’s – especially to organize strategically effective nonviolent grassroots movements for various issues. Glen Anderson has conducted this series of workshops several times on other issues, and participants have found the workshops and handouts inspiring, informative, and practical.
