Did you all know that there is a special coalition of the 10 biggest independent 350 groups across the US called the “350 Network Council”? Folks from these groups have teamed up to create an AMAZING training series, organized BY and FOR local groups, called Get Ready for the Revolution!
These four trainings over the next couple of months are to help prepare members of your local group to face the increasingly chaotic election season with resiliency and power.
Each two-hour session will be led by an experienced trainer from a local 350 group, in coordination with 350.org US. As always, these trainings are free and we encourage you to invite/recruit other members of your 350 group to participate.
Here’s the training lineup:
  • Tuesday, Sept. 15: Keeping Healthy and Safe at Protest (5-7pm PT / 8-10pm ET): Learn how to be mentally and physically prepared for being on the streets protesting (led by 350 Seattle).
  • Saturday, Sept. 26: Remote Organizing and Volunteer Engagement 101 (11am – 1 pm PT / 2-4 pm ET): Learn how to maximize remote organizing and engage new volunteers now and following the election (led by 350 Colorado).
  • Saturday, Oct. 10: Digital Organizing 101 (11am-1pm PT / 2-4pm ET): Learn digital organizing basics, best practices, tools, and get tips on email and social media strategy (led by 350 Massachusetts).
  • Nov 21-22: Grassroots / Year End Fundraising (date and time TBD): Learn how to plan your group’s end of year fundraising campaign. Get tips, templates and info on crowdsourcing (led by 350Vermont).
Consider this an opportunity for new and more experienced volunteers in your group to learn or hone skills that can boost the effectiveness and sustainability of your group! It will also be a chance to connect with members of other local 350 groups across the country.
Here is a one page flyer, here is a promotional toolkit with sample email and social media posts, and here is the link to register.
