Activists: The New Class

Transportation Alternatives’ staff organizers are well-known in political circles for efficacy and pizazz, and this winter, they launched a mini-university to share their knowhow. The first free, day-long session in TransAlt’s downtown office was so sought-after that more than triple the possible capacity applied to attend; then, the second overflow session filled up immediately. All told, more than 140 people participated in an anti-oppression training, and learned the ins-and-outs of community organizing and managing a successful political campaign. Future sessions planned for this summer will focus on specific topics like social media and coalition building.
