Training for Change 11/12-14

From the Burmese jungle to coal mining towns in West Virginia, Training for Change (TFC) has for decades worked alongside grassroots activists to help them build more effective movements. This November 12-14, TFC is bringing its popular Training for Social Action Trainers (TSAT) to Duluth.

The TSAT is meant for activists, educators and organizers of all stripes who want to take their movement-building skills to a new level. Using experiential tools and small group discussion, the TSAT covers everything from workshop design to confronting racism. I highly recommend this training… but space is limited and filling quickly.

The fee is on a sliding scale ($150-$300) and includes all meals. Please don’t let cost be an obstacle: scholarships are available. Check out the Training for Change website for more details and to register.

So, if I get 3 friends to sign up and pay the 150-300 bucks, and then they get 3 friends each to sign up and pay the 150-300 bucks ... and so on, eventually we'll all be rewarded with "change," right? Do I pretty much have it right?

Pssst... Danny G, lemme let you in on the real conspiracy. Don't tell anyone!

First, we rent a hall and buy food for the weekend. Then we fly in a team of trainers and compensate them fairly for 3 days of work. Then there are generous scholarships. Then TFC might have a little cash left over so they can go to places like the Burmese jungle where activists have fewer resources.

It all... comes down... to the monks.
