Earlier this month, we let you know about Organizing 313 -- our last training as part of the State Training Program. In collaboration with Detroit partner groups, we'll provide a training agenda that will include election protection strategies, election reform, early voting strategies, and power analysis. Can you make it? Join community leaders, organizers, and workers to network, share, and build the community. RSVP and let us know you can make it. This training is free of charge, but space is limited. Looking forward to seeing you there! Brandon ------ Every year RootsCamp convenes organizers from across issues and around the country to learn, celebrate, and grow together. Sessions are planned and led by participants, and attendees share their best practices, hard-learned lessons, and new ideas with one another, finding inspiration in one another's work. Since 2006, RootsCamp has grown every year, with more than 2,000 participants in 2012. For information on upcoming RootsCamp dates, how RootsCamp works, or related programs, visit!
