Retreat to a small island for five days of immersive campaign training and relationship-building to advance intersectional, effective, and equitable movements and campaigns.
Increasingly, organizers are being challenged to break out of their silos and make new strides in bridging communities and promoting collaboration across issues.
At Firelight Campaign School, 30 organizers across different movements and communities will come together to build capacity for effective, inclusive, and equitable movement building. With support from seasoned trainers and guest facilitators, you will develop skills in digital and field organizing, coalition building, mobilizing resources, and campaign strategy.
Participants at Firelight Campaign School will consist of students, union workers, non-profit staff, volunteers, grassroots activists, artists, and storytellers. Individuals who are organizing on the ground to move us forward.
