JOIN US IN 2016 FOR THE LAUNCH OF RG’S REGIONAL LEADERSHIP RETREATS!

Schedule of Retreats:

West Coast and Mountain West chapters: Bay AreaAugust 26-28 Register Here!

East Coast chapters: Philadelphia, Sept. 30-Oct. 2Register Here!

These retreats are an opportunity for members to share about your work, be inspired by other chapters, deepen relationships and analysis while strengthening skills for multiracial base building, campaign work, membership recruitment, and deepening our anti-oppression skills and practice! (See sample agenda below)

There will be three regional retreats this summer and fall held in or outside of Chicago, Philadelphia, and the Bay Area. They are a good fit for chapter leaders, praxis group leaders, campaign committee members, people doing 1:1s, or otherwise leading in our chapter work. We also welcome emerging leaders. If you have questions about whether this is a good fit for you, please ask your National Organizer.

We hope these retreats will catalyze chapters into even stronger, grounded, strategic organizing. More intimate than our national retreats, there will be between 20-35 participants and lots of opportunity for relationship building. In alignment with our ask of all RG leaders to be members, you must be a dues-paying member to attend.

We look forward to seeing with you in the upcoming months!

If you are interested in finding out more contact your National Organizer, or Retreat Organizer Jes Kelley at jes@resourcegeneration.org.
