Springfield No One Leaves/Nadie Se Mude believes that the only way that we can build a movement to achieve transformative and systemic change we must empower, train and support thousands of new leaders and organizers who have been most impacted by social and economic injustice.
In 2013 we launched our SNOL/NSM People’s School to create year-long political education and organizing-training spaces to do this. The People’s School includes a diverse array of workshops, trainings and our Movement Leaders Academy to develop a new generation of movement organizers. The Peoples School includes:
The Movement Leaders Academy: 2x Annual 7-week leadership & organizing skills trainings and political analysis building workshops to train SNOL members to be leaders of the organization & organizers in the broader movement.
Encuentros Comunitarios: Spanish-language community gatherings to strengthen political analysis, build community, learn about global people’s movements and make connections between systems of injustice including housing, immigration, domestic and international economic policy. (English Interpretation is provided)
Monthly Political Education Gatherings/Events – Including Movie Nights, Guest Speakers, Discussions with other Movement Organizations and more!
Organizing Skills Trainings: Including Facilitation Training, Planning Campaigns, Developing Power Analysis’, and more.
