OUR FOCUS

  • Training that helps us each learn and understand why we organize, what we share in common and what the current circumstances call on us to do has been a tremendously powerful learning experience for many IVP organizers. We will spend the day in this training.
  • Marshall Ganz directs the Leading Change Network and teaches at the Kennedy School at Harvard University. He served as a civil rights organizer in Mississippi in 1964. In 1965, he joined Cesar Chavez and the United Farm Workers; over the next 16 years he gained experience in union, community, issue, and political organizing and became Director of Organizing. During the 1980s, he worked with grassroots groups to develop effective organizing programs, designing innovative voter mobilization strategies for local, state, and national electoral campaigns. He has taught at the Kennedy School since 1991 about leadership, organization, and strategy in social movements, civic associations, and politics.
