Passion to Action: Learn How to Advocate for Social Housing

This special event has already taken place.

Brick by brick, learn how to advocate for social housing. 

Are you involved in the housing sector and passionate about making positive social change? This course is for you.

During this 6-week zoom workshop from the Institute for Change Leaders and the Douglas Coldwell Layton Foundation, lead instructors Melanie Matthews and Robb Johannes will teach you how to:

  • Tell your story to motivate others
  • Recruit and keep volunteers
  • Structure your team to avoid burnout and facilitate growth
  • Design a strategy that gets the change you want
  • Choose tactics that move decision-makers

You will learn through lectures and small group activities that will allow you to practice the skills we teach. You will work with an experienced organizer, who will facilitate your group and help you plan your organizing project. You will finish the course ready to tell your story, with a developed organizing statement, and tools to plan your organizing project's strategy and tactics.

This training will be held every Tuesday between April 11th to May 16th from 6pm-8pm ET.
