2019 Training for Change Makers

Please join the ACLU of Northern California at our annual, in-person Training for Change Makers. At the training, you will have the opportunity to network with like-minded people from your region and learn how you can take local action on critical civil liberties issues. Staff from the ACLU of Northern California will provide skills-building trainings, content for you to better understand some of our civil liberties local advocacy campaigns, and facilitate opportunities for you to brainstorm how you would apply those learnings in your community. Local advocacy is an important step in building up to or implementing statewide policy change, and makes California a successful national leader on expanding and protecting the rights of all people in our state. We hope you will join us to be part of the change!
