We are excited to announce that Catalyst Project will be hosting the Anne Braden Anti-Racist Organizer Training Program for white social justice activists and organizers starting in May of 2024! This year’s program will meet in-person (with COVID protocols) for 3 trainings May-August in Orlando, Florida. Applications are due February 15th, so apply now!
The Anne Braden Program is part political education, part leadership development and personal transformation work, and part organizing training. It’s not a series of “101” style workshops, but a rigorous political education and leadership development program intended to support white organizers and activists in becoming more effective racial justice leaders as a part of multi-racial movements.
This year’s program is open to people organizing anywhere — you do not need to live or organize in Florida to participate in the 2024 Anne Braden Program. This program will include 3 4-day trainings in Orlando, 2-3 online sessions, small group meetings, one-on-one mentorship, homework, and grassroots fundraising. The training weekends will be in-person (with COVID protocols):
- Weekend 1: May 10-13
- Weekend 2: June 21-24
- Weekend 3: Aug 2-5
Please share the application with organizers you know to help us build the most powerful cohort we can. Applications are due Feb 15th!
