Our educational workshop offerings are a core way we support our constituents. We convene speakers and curate content on a broad array of topics helpful to social change organizations and leaders locally, including those on nonprofit lobbying & advocacy, know your rights, grassroots organizing, grant seeking and grassroots fundraising, topic-based panels, strategies on social change, and more. We’re committed to being responsive to the current climate and choose topics based on community needs.
