From the West Side to the Capitol, everyday people are making change happen in Charleston:

  • A low-income single mom is raising awareness about the importance of SNAP...
  • Young folks organized a candidate forum for the City Council and Mayor's election...
  • Community groups on the West Side are working to get rid of dilapidated buildings...
  • Kanawha Co. teachers demanded that the legislature put KIDS first...

...and those are just a few examples of the great work going on right here!

You've been a part of it all - but there's still a lot to do: working with our new Mayor; making changes to how CURA operates; improving our public schools; bringing fresh food to every neighborhood; diversifying our economy; eliminating racism and bigotry...

Whatever issue moves you, let's take it to the next level!

At this workshop, you'll learn how to:

  • build a strong team 
  • increase your power by getting more people involved
  • get laser-focused on solutions, not just problems
  • develop a strategy
  • talk about your issue using the power of stories

and other tools of community organizing that can be applied to any campaign or project.

Let's work together to make WV the best place in the world to live, work, and raise a family - no matter who you are!
