Are you interested in organizing your co-workers? Do you want to solve problems that you see around you? Perhaps something unfair has happened to you or a co-worker and you want to do something about it? For us, that means getting organized.

In this workshop series, based on the book Secrets of a Successful Organizer by Labor Notes, you will learn how to identify the key issues in your workplace, build campaigns to address them, anticipate management tricks and traps, and inspire your peers and co-workers to fight together despite their fears.

Organizing is like cooking: there are proven recipes that anyone can learn, methods that work and others that don't. Your results may not always be perfect, since we are dealing with human beings, but you will do better if you learn from the successes and mistakes of the organizers before you.

These workshops are based on our acclaimed book, Secrets of a Successful Organizer.
