“MAPJ’s Community Organizing Workshop provides meaningful, pragmatic guiding experience to the nuts and bolts of collective action. The trainers are as warm and inviting as they are experienced and focused, and the workshop’s content is accessible, detailed, and directly applicable to the community organizing efforts I take part in. The experience is invaluable for anyone either just getting started in community organizing efforts, or looking for like-minded individuals to further develop their skill set and knowledge.”
