Organizing New York will bring together hundreds of leaders, organizers, fundraisers, techies and activists to share our collective wisdom, skills, and talents. Join us!
Friday-Sunday at the United Federation of Teachers, 52 Broadway in Manhattan.
Register on Site – NOT ONLINE.
We will have workshops, discussions, consulting and networking opportunities, visionary speakers and a provocative debate around strategy and practices. Over three days right by Wall Street, we will bring together a thousand people to learn from each other, share stories and strategies and build our skills, organizations and movements.
Our featured tracks are in Online Organizing, Advocacy and Organizing, and Grassroots Fundraising. The agenda is constructed around the needs of staff, members and leaders of union locals, community based organizations, advocacy nonprofits and individual activists.
This year’s conference brings together groups with long track records in running successful conferences and trainings: Organizing 2.0, Working Families, The New York Civic Engagement Table, Wellstone Action, Rootscamp, Democracy for America and many more.
