Building Power to Fight for a Just Society

Training hosted by the Spokane Alliance



Saturdays November 12th and 19th






Free for Spokane Alliance member organizations. (Please note your member organization below.)

$100 for participants not from Spokane Alliance member organizations (to be applied to future membership dues). We have many scholarships available and do not want cost to a barrier. Please email Chloe about this option.

The training will be capped. Once we reach that cap, you'll be placed on a waitlist.





Location to be determined 



This training provides content based on the philosophy and practices developed by the Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF) in 80 years of organizing experience. The topics include:

  • Why organize? – Examine the history, traditions, and values of our labor, faith, community, and educational organizations.
  • Fundamental organizing skills – Learn tools to conduct individual relational meetings, listening sessions, research, negotiations, and action to help obtain a concrete, winnable outcome.
  • Strengthening our institutions – Engage people systematically in a culture that is relational, action-oriented, and reflective.
  • Problems vs. issues – Focus from general problems to concrete, winnable issues by using relational power in the public arena to negotiate for the common good.

Deadline to register: Friday, November 4th
