DSA is an organization of nearly 100,000 people across the country, and more than 1,000 here in Philly. That’s a lot of people power. To build a true mass organization, we need to develop the leadership and organizing skills of our many members.
That’s why we’re launching our Leadership Development Program.
This program will cover topics including one-to-one conversations, base-building, campaign strategy, and facilitating accessible meetings – all concepts and skills central to effective organizing. We'll meet four times (July 9, July 23, August 6, and August 20), including some in-person meetings.
Interested? You can:
We hope to see you there! Please email Duncan at [email protected] if you have any questions.
