“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world…
indeed, it is the only thing that ever has!”
- Margaret Mead
Are you ready to take a stand for equality? Are you ready to make a difference in your community? Are you ready to learn the organizing skills you need to motivate volunteers and create change?
Join us for Camp Equality Florida July 11-12 in Orlando.
This intensive two-day training is designed to teach the principles of effective community organizing to activists committed to LGBT equality in Florida
Grassroots organizing experts will lead workshops on:
- Reaching People by Telling Your Story
- Team Building and Leadership Development
- Media Relations
- Grassroots Organizing
- Creating a Strategic Plan for a Local Campaign
Built on the training model that powered Barack Obama's Presidential campaign, Camp Equality Florida will build a bottom-up grassroots movement in the state of Florida starting with you, right in your own community. You will gain the skills necessary to build an organizing team, plan a strategy for political change, and tell your personal story to win pro-equality legislation in your community!
Equality Florida will put a high priority on training teams of 4 or more individuals from each community, who will work together on local action plans throughout Florida. Sign up today and reach out to people in your community whom you believe will make strong team members.
Invite other local leaders to join you at Camp Equality Florida!
