Grassroots Ambassadors gather in North Carolina

On March 21-24, 25 grassroots leaders from 14 states came together in Whitakers, NC for the second Grassroots Ambassadors core team convening. The group of highly engaged leaders — who are stepping into roles as peer organizers and taking more responsibility in campaign work– have dug deep into methods to effectively recruit, train, develop, and engage new leaders through their local organizations.

The purpose of the convening was to begin preparing for upcoming grassroots ambassadors trainings later in the year, deepen relationships among leaders and find common threads in their issue work, and to lift up new tools around racial and gender justice.
