Introduction to Community Organizing Training

May 10 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
NCADA,
9355 Olive Blvd.
Olivette, MO 63132 United States
+ Google Map

Facing Addiction with NCADD has visited 40 communities in 27 different states, training over 1,500 individuals on community organizing. The communities visited have begun fighting for critical services that are needed in order to effectively combat substance use. This includes opening recovery community centers, working with law enforcement, developing new treatment facilities, expanding access to evidence-based prevention programming, bringing new family support networks into existence and much more. This training will focus on an overview of community organizing – what it is, what it is not, how it is different than other action steps taken in the past, and how to begin this work.
