Here at WEC, one thought has been at the forefront of our minds since the 2016 election: How can we better support our members in taking action in this new political landscape? It is now more important than ever to amplify our voices on issues we care about, push decision makers to act, and build grassroots power in our communities.

WEC,  Latino Community Fund of Washington State, and Washington Conservation Voters have put together a series of online trainings that you can watch to learn all the basics about grassroots organizing, and how to amplify your voice.

Watch the Workshops

On January 18th, we hosted a Grassroots 101 Workshop on Facebook Live with our friends Latino Community Fund of Washington State! Check out the video here. You’ll learn how to use your voice in this new political landscape – skills like how to organize a rally, draft a petition, or set up a phone bank.

Our second Grassroots 101 Workshop occurred on March 7th, focusing on storytelling and how to be a Town Hall activist. Watch the video here! See the video en español here.
