Workers Rising Everywhere, the fourth instalment of Organizing for Power, kicks off on 18 May. Registration closes on 3 May, so sign up today!
Organizing for Power (O4P) is a free—yet invaluable—educational programme to train organizers across the world. The programme focuses on building mass participation in structure-based environments, primarily in the workplace. Though it is open to all serious organizers, O4P is intended specially for those seeking to win the toughest battles by building high participation organizing bodies led by actively engaged super majorities.
Started in October 2019, led by acclaimed labour organizer and educator Jane McAlevey and hosted by the Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung, O4P’s first pilot workshop attracted thousands of organizers from dozens of trade unions and organizing groups across forty countries. Together with subsequent programs starting in March and September 2020, O4P has already trained more than 10,000 organizers in essential skills including organic leadership identification, one-on-one conversations and the words we choose, and the role of structure tests in building strong organizing bodies.
In 2021 and beyond, we plan to continue building on these successes, hosting various skills-based trainings that will give organizers the chance to join forces with like-minded people and organizing groups from across the world. If your union or organizing group would like to take part in future O4P trainings, please contact the Organizing for Power team in the language of your choice.
