Neighborhood Organizing Summit and Awards-Celebrating Resistance
Saturday, August 31, 2019 at 1 PM – 7:30 PM
Lussier Community Education Center
55 S Gammon Rd, Madison, Wisconsin 53717
 
After 4 years of providing Leadership Development to Grassroots Organizers in Madison Neighborhoods, we would like to celebrate those resisting the status quo with little recognition. We hope to create a space that brings Organizers together across identities, organizations, and organizing styles to encourage Solidarity and Coalition Building. 
 
The first half of the Summit will separate participants by Solidarity Caucuses. These Solidarity Caucuses are a means for organizers to share their current work, learn what other organizers are doing around an issue, and encourage collaboration and coalition building.
 
Check out our Solidarity Caucuses! (hosts TBA)
