ABOUT WEEK-LONG:
The Weeklong Training curriculum starts with an internal reflection on power and self interest, then moves to political analysis, creating team, organizing a campaign, and ends with more reflection on your “path to power”.

The Weeklong Leadership Training uses training methods that are agitational and experiential. The week is constructed with the intention of compelling you to confront the script you’ve been conditioned to follow -- a script that has the express purpose of preventing you from confronting the power structures of oppression. The entire arc of training, in terms of both content and approach, is about participants confronting their own oppression and the consequences for not taking action to address the root causes of the problems in our communities. It’s about learning at a gut level to take full responsibility for change.

ABOUT NPA:
National People's Action (NPA) is a network of grassroots organizations with a fierce reputation for direct action from across the country that work to advance a national economic and racial justice agenda. NPA has over 200 organizers working to unite everyday people in cities, towns, and rural communities throughout the United States through direct-action, house meetings and community organizing.

NPA and its affiliates range from farmers in rural Iowa to youth in the South Bronx. We have affiliate organizations in 14 states with remote network offices in Washington D.C., California, New York and a central office in Chicago.

NPA staffs and supports three local, state and national campaigns in support of economic and racial justice: Bank Accountability, Housing Justice, and Immigrant and Worker’s Rights. These campaigns strive for “wins” meaning tangible concrete changes for our communities through policy and consciousness of social injustices and the empowerment to fight them.
