Based on DPE’s Extend the Invitation: A 10 Step Approach to Internal Organizing, the workshops provided practical, easy-to-implement tips and tools that can help cultivate more committed, engaged members. Developing a united, committed membership is key for the type of successful negotiations that leads to union professionals enjoying higher pay, better benefits, and safer workplaces than nonunion counterparts. The workshops also included simulations and role-playing exercises that allowed attendees to try out the strategies they were learning.

DPE staff is available to present the Extend the Invitation training (or trainings on other DPE organizing resources) to affiliates’ leadership, staff, and activists. Please contact DPE Legislative and Outreach Director Michael Wasser to learn more.
