The Trainers Group began after the 2016 election as a response to the need to seriously and systematically develop a progressive movement. A group of activists came together to identify what kinds of information and skills we will need to build a movement that is effectively able to stop the dismantling of our democracy, reframe values towards progressive ideas and win the electoral seats needed to carry out a progressive agenda.
Program and Objectives:
The Trainers Group offers speakers, workshops and trainings of any length to provide the tools needed for individuals and organizations to be most effective in their political work.
Our objectives are (1) to train ourselves on an on-going basis to be effective trainers with others (2) to provide trainings in the topics and formats that best assist the movement to grow and be effective (3) to provide an historical context, ground rules, and understanding of how movements develop to encourage cohesiveness and maximum effectiveness in our work
