  • To learn the core principles and process of strategic community organizing

  • To build a sense of activist and political community in the region

  • To increase our understanding of power and how to build real power to advance change

“The training provided through the Community Governance Partnership for San Joaquin County was a pivotal moment for progressive coalition building in our communities. Not only was Mr. Hunt's training for direct action campaigns detailed, collaborative, well organized, perfectly executed, and inspiring in itself, the camaraderie that sprung from two days of focused activity among representatives from several dozen groups is carrying the region forward toward better collaboration for a number of projects."
