Aug 7 – 13, 2021
This past year and a half has been one of both tremendous tragedy and hope. We’ve learned many lessons from the efforts to build Native power, defend sovereignty, and honor our relationships and responsibilities in our respective communities.
It is the right moment to pause and share experiences that provide direction for long-term transformational change. Apply for NOA’s Native Community Organizing Training.
We are resuming our annual national Native community organizing training gatherings to sharpen skills needed in the 21st century that are rooted in traditional cultures and practices. This year’s training will be from August 7 – 13, 2021, in Denver, Colorado. The training gathering will follow the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and local guidelines for in-person events.
Seven Days (5 full days 2 half/travel days) to explore:
- Practices and history of Native community organizing.
- Spiritually directed Native power building for social change.
- Designing Native community grassroots campaigns.
Application deadline is June 24.
The cost of housing, transportation, and most meals are covered by the Native Organizers Alliance. Participants are responsible for additional costs. Organizations, tribal governments, groups, or individuals who can contribute to defraying the costs of this training will provide the opportunity to go beyond 20 participants.
Apply to join Native leaders and organizers from across Indian Country for a week of skills building and reflection August 7 – August 13, 2021, Denver, Colorado.
Space is limited and unfortunately, not all applicants will be accepted. Acceptance emails will be sent on June 27, 2021.
