Organizer Boot Camp: How to Build a Base and Move Into Action This intensive, three-month training moves through the core organizing concepts of power, self-interest, and one-to-one relational meetings, and teaches you how to make propositions, hold effective meetings and create a powerful team. Materials and sessions are in English and Spanish.

George Goehl, co-director of People’s Action, made this statement today:

“We congratulate Congressman Keith Ellison on an incredible campaign that brought hundreds of thousands of people into the debate about the direction and leadership of the Democratic National Committee. By stepping forward, Ellison has moved the party closer to the bold economic reforms that will unrig the economy so it can work for everyday people.

“We are obviously disappointed that Congressman Ellison didn’t win. We applaud his leadership, wisdom and grace.

“Tom Perez has taken a strong first step in naming Congressman Ellison deputy chair. We hope Perez takes additional actions that demonstrate that the compass of the Democratic Party is the hopes and dreams of the working class, and that its power is in the grassroots.”
