ONE Wake Launches IAF UniversityAttend one session per month, March thru May
IAF UNIVERSITY is a way for you to act on your values with allies from ONE Wake’s 43 member institutions across Wake County. It is a three month commitment (March – May) of 2 hours a month that includes training and doing.
At the monthly trainings there will be concrete next steps to build people power and to take action (virtually) with others—on existing ONE Wake issue campaigns. All this will prepare us collectively for larger-scale work to effect change within multiple towns and cities across the county during the upcoming fall municipal elections.
The IAF University curriculum includes:
- How to move beyond protest and petitions to organize people to bring about long-term systemic change;
- How to implement the nuts and bolts of organizing: relational meetings, power analysis, how to build a core team in your institution, how to run a research action, and how to get the reactions you want in meetings with elected leaders;
- How to take what you are hearing in the community and flex your organizing muscle to create change locally;
