For the Win: How to Develop and Assess Your Organization's Campaigns

The NYC Capacity Building Collaborative is accepting applications for For the Win, a 1.5 day training, with optional follow-up coaching hours, designed to create space for organizers to learn about and reflect on campaign development and implementation.  

Navigating legislative sessions or different bureaucratic offices and regulations, deciding which organizations to be in coalition with, assessing what is winnable and what is part of the long game-- there are many pieces to campaigns that organizers have to consider. When done right, campaigns shift the balance of power, change the dominant discourse, and have concrete impacts that improve people’s lives. Fortunately, NYC has a long history of people and organizations engaged in these kinds of campaigns that we can learn and draw from.
                                               
This training is an opportunity to sharpen the skill sets that already exist in our movements, to demystify the campaign development and evaluation process for staff and organizations for whom this work represents a shift in approach, and to apply these learnings to our current context. Our goal is for participants to utilize this space to collectively workshop their challenges and questions around campaign work in order to deepen their skills and to foster movement relationships.


TRAINING INFO             
                                                                                
Dates and Times: July 25th, 9:30am-4pm & July 26th, 9:30am-2pm
Location: Midtown


EXPECTATIONS and READINESS

This training is open to three representatives from your organization, one of whom must be a staffer with decision-making power on campaigns within your organization, and the other two – if not all – have roles in implementing the campaign. Applicants must commit to participating for the full length of the trainings on both days.

ELIGIBILITY

This training is free to grantees of the Andrus Family Fund, Brooklyn Community Foundation, Cricket Island Foundation, Daphne Foundation, Korean American Community Foundation, Mertz Gilmore Foundation, New York Foundation, New York Women's Foundation, NYC Fund for Girls and Young Women of Color, North Star Fund, Scherman Foundation, and Stonewall Community Foundation.

Healing Justice

The NYC Capacity Building Collaborative is accepting applications for Healing Justice, a 2-day training, with optional follow-up group coaching hours.  

Doing the daily work of social change can expose us to trauma and lead to burnout, which is only magnified when leaders hail from low-income, people of color communities. This workshop will help participants understand an empowering framework around trauma, their personal leadership, and vision in order to build strategies dedicated to promoting the healing and resilience of community organizers and community workers. Through the 2-day training, participants will reflect and engage in activities geared towards how to implement healing-centered strategies in their personal lives and in the structures, processes, and culture of their organizations. Finally, participants will self-organize in a community of peers to advance internal work and have opportunities to continue to receive and offer support to this cohort of organizations in order to sustain individual wellness practices.

TRAINING INFO

EXPECTATIONS and READINESS

This training is free to grantees of the Andrus Family Fund, Brooklyn Community Foundation, Cricket Island Foundation, Daphne Foundation, Korean American Community Foundation, Mertz Gilmore Foundation, New York Foundation, New York Women's Foundation, NYC Fund for Girls and Young Women of Color, North Star Fund, Scherman Foundation, and Stonewall Community Foundation.
