Organizing to win

For years, the BCFED Organizing Institute has trained new organizers in the basics and helped more experienced organizers sharpen and broaden their skills. The topics in Organizing Institute workshops vary, but you can always count on lively discussions and great, practical content.

If you’re a member of a BCFED affiliate and want to sharpen your organizing and campaigning chops, talk to your union about attending an upcoming Organizing Institute workshop!
