Bend the Arc leaders at a regional training in Kansas City, MO.


In the face of bigotry and attacks on democracy, Americans are rising up at an unprecedented scale and intensity. Now is a crucial moment to hone your skills and strengthen your commitment and connections to build structural and communal power. Together, we are going to usher in an America that finally lives up to its promise of freedom and equality for everyone.


Training schedule and components:

  • Saturday, May 27th, 12:00pm-5:00pm: Introduction and Anti-Oppression training with Bend the Arc
  • Sunday, May 28th, 9:00am-5:00pm: JOIN for Justice’s ROAR Organizing Training 

Please note: Training space is limited and preference will be given to those who can attend both training days. However, if you can only attend for one day, you can still register. Please also send an email to Max Socol indicating which day you will attend.
