There will be time for Q&A. Please register to receive the Zoom link.

Growing our movements and building successful campaigns that can win requires effective recruitment of new members and retention of members into an existing campaign, project, or structure. When done right, intentional and thoughtful recruitment and retention practices can help to deepen relationships, satisfaction, and trust, while growing campaigns for maximum impact. 

This workshop will be run by Amanda Havey-Sánchez (she/her), from The Climate Justice Organizing HUBAmanda is a Latina Toronto-based organizer, activist-researcher, and educator.
