Welcome to our Campaigning 101 Workshop Series!

Are you concerned about an issue that is affecting your community and want to do something about it? Are you involved in a community group and want to have a stronger impact? Do you feel the urge to take action, but feel a bit unprepared to do so?

We’ve all been there! Getting started on a campaign, and making our work more effective is hard, and requires that we’re knowledgeable about many things. It often requires lots of practice and time, and there is no cheating! But things can be easier if you take a moment to learn from the experience of others, and to reflect about your own work and build a more strategic and realistic plan. The good news is that you can attend our free Campaigning 101 workshop series to learn the basics!
