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 planning and running a comprehensive issue campaign.
- We build the organizer brain—teaching models of social change, how to work in coalition spaces, 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 our own transformation needed to personally reflect that vision.
