The ACCE A-Team is a transformative training program that develops leaders in the classroom and in the field into neighborhood organizers and campaigners motivated to expand the people’s movement. A-Team trainings focus on 3 critical organizing components:

  • We provide training on the nuts and bolts of organizing—from how to build a base to running a comprehensive campaign.
  • We build the organizer brain—teaching models of social change, how to work in coalition, what is power and how to build it, and the important intersection of race and economics in our fights.
  • We spend time on personal and community transformation—taking leaders through a process that allows them to build and own their vision of what it looks like to win. Then we address how to transform ourselves to reflect that vision.

A-team members gather as one of the A-team members in San diego introduces herself to the team and speaks about her involvement with ACCE.
