ACTION: Youth Organizing Trainings in CO and FL


I am very pleased to announce the two trainings below. It is high time that the immigration reform movement acknowledges the power of youth and student organizing. Please re-post and push to your networks!

Do you think you’re a leader?

Are you interested in organizing?

Do you care about immigration reform?

Fair Immigration Reform Movement

of The Center for Community Change


Reform Immigration for America Campaign



The Center for Community Change is organizing two state-wide youth trainings in Colorado and Florida. Each training will provide a comprehensive introduction to organizing and leadership, including learning to tell your story and working effectively in teams to create shared strategy and produce measurable action.

What will you do?

Following the weekend-long workshop, you will be ready to continue working with your fellow in-state team members and network to engage others in building a movement for humane and comprehensive immigration reformParticipants should plan to attend the entire training, beginning Friday evening at 6pm, through Sunday evening at 5pm.

Who should participate?

All new and developing leaders passionate about securing immigration reform and organizing for a better future are invited to participate.  Priority will be given to young adults between the ages of 17 and 25 who reside within the training state.  These trainings are team-focused:  teams will be formed based on geography and will go through the training together.  The goal of the training is to build and equip these teams so that they will be prepared to work together to achieve immigration reform and other progressive social change.
