Building Leadership and Organizing Capacity

Our Building Leadership and Organizing Capacity (BLOC) model is our flagship training and leadership development program. BLOC equips participants with the important community organizing tools and tactics for base building with people for power.

Through BLOC, we train people in models of social change; the how-to’s of community organizing and advocacy, leadership development, strategic planning, issue cuts, and more. We coach and mentor new and veteran organizers and advocacy organizations. We hold BLOC organizing roundtables in both Connecticut and New York, and hold BLOC trainings across the country.
