Anne Braden Anti-Racist Organizing Training Program


We are excited to announce that applications are now available for our fifth Anne Braden Anti-Racist Organizing Training Program, which starts up in February 2015!

Applications are due October 1, 2014 and can be found online here:

The last several programs were a tremendous success built upon a foundation of love and labor from lots of people in our community. Many of you have previously helped us with the crucial work of recruiting participants, or have supported our work in other capacities, which is why we are writing to you now.

As you may know, the Anne Braden program is designed for white social justice activists and organizers who are working to broaden and deepen their movement skills, analysis, and practice. It’s not a series of “101” style workshops, but rather an intensive leadership development program intended to support already-politicized white activists in becoming more effective, historically-grounded, and accountable anti-racist organizers, leaders, and multi-racial movement builders.

We prioritize recruiting folks who are working-class, Jewish, queer, trans, gender non-conforming, and/or women, and who are members of movement organizations or otherwise rooted in struggles for social and ecological justice. White activists who don’t fit the above descriptions, but who have experience working for social justice and are looking for a rigorous political education and organizing training program, are encouraged to apply as well.

We are asking you to pass along these outreach materials, and to personally encourage anyone in your life who you think could benefit from the program to apply by October 1st. Applications are available now on the Catalyst website You can also download a printable copy of the following information on our website.

Thank you for all the ways you are bringing more justice into this world, and for the ways you support Catalyst’s work for collective liberation!
