Midwest Academy: Effective Coalitions

September 30, 2020 @ 4:00 am - October 1, 2020 @ 3:59 am

Note: This session is intended for alumni or organizers with 3+ years of experience.


September 30, 2020, 10:30am – 3:00pm CDT
November 10, 2020, 10:30am – 3:00pm CDT
December 11, 2020, 10:30am – 3:00pm CDT

Building power is central to organizing, and we build coalitions to build greater power for justice. Coalitions help us organize larger numbers of people in order to address bigger issues and the root causes of social problems. In this session, we will acknowledge the challenges and dilemmas in building coalitions and discuss the guidelines that help to build inspiring coalitions.

This is a 1 day training.

10:30 AM – 3:00 PM, Central Time — including 1 hour break for lunch, plus other breaks throughout. Feel free to snack and do your thing – we are all in this together!

Offered on these three dates:

September 30
November 10
December 11


We are offering a sliding scale for these online trainings because we want them to be accessible to everyone.

During registration, you will be asked to select your organizational budget. The amount you will be charged is displayed there as well.

After registration, you will receive TWO emails – one automatically from Action Network; one from Midwest Academy with your invoice and a payment link (that one might take a few business days).

Other Details:

We will cap each training at 24 people. Expect to participate in discussions in the full group as well as in breakout rooms.
We will use Zoom for all trainings. If you can, we’d love for you to connect by app. There are annotation and interaction features not available through browser (though we will adapt to browser-users as well!).
Shortly before the training, you will receive an email with some more details, including the Zoom meeting link and password. This will be password-protected.

If you have ANY questions or concerns, please reach out to us: [email protected]
