Phone: Building Power Together Jarods Blueprint Building Power Together will be a one-day workshop with the purpose of equipping progressive campus leaders with the tools to build more inclusive, collaborative, and efficient movements. By bringing together leaders from different issue areas, the workshop will highlight how those issues intersect with one another. Trainers will emphasize issues of diversity and inclusion within progressive movements, both historical and present. Leaders will also be trained on the political importance of personal storytelling and self-care principles.
