About Renew U.S.

Renew integrates deep organizing, policy advocacy and electoral politics to achieve immediate state-level policy victories and long-term, sustained political transformation. In 2020, we built a strong foundation and a powerful multi-racial coalition of 150+  grassroots organizations. In 2021, we launched our Campaign Manager Training Program and have successfully recruited and trained 300+ participants since then. Now, we are launching our Summer 2022 series of weekend-long intensives, designed to cover the essential tools needed for a final campaign push. This new training model is geared towards building lasting power and scale in the timeframe needed to meet the social and environmental crises we face.

About the Bootcamp

The Renew U.S. organizing bootcamp is a weekend-long, interactive intensive on the fundamentals of organizing. Over the course of two days, we will:

  • Define and dive into organizing and public narrative through the work of Dr. Marshall Ganz
  • Unpack and fine-tune your story of self to kick off your 1:1 organizing conversations
  • Review 6-part organizing conversations for effective relationship-based work
  • Tie it all together with field, fundraising, and basic comms strategy
