Campaign Strategy 101
Issue-based campaigns are sequences of collective actions that activate constituencies and pressure targets toward achievable demands. They’re capable of winning concrete victories and of building transformative movements. This workshop covers the building blocks of campaign strategy through examples and accessible frameworks. It’s an opportunity for new organizers and more experienced campaigners to sharpen their “theory of change” for campaign organizing and strategy development.
Length: 2 hours, online
BY THE END OF THE TRAINING, YOU WILL…
- Deepen your understanding of campaign organizing
- Learn key strategy concepts through concrete examples

WHO SHOULD ATTEND THIS WORKSHOP?
This workshop is oriented toward community organizers, but labor and workplace organizers are also welcome to attend. By “campaigns” we mean issue-based action campaigns – this workshop is not about electoral campaigns.
This workshop is for anyone planning a campaign, considering planning a campaign, or already in the middle of waging a campaign who wants an overview of key strategy frameworks. We welcome new and more experienced organizers to join, regardless of past experience with campaigns.
This is an interactive online training using the Zoom platform. Come prepared to participate fully, just as you would an in-person training.
