If you haven’t yet attended a Camp Courage event, you’re missing out on an amazing, powerful, and useful experience!
Inspired by the “Camp Obama” trainings that powered neighbor-to-neighbor organizing across America in 2008, Camp Courage is an intensive two-day training designed to teach the principles and skills of community organizing to activists working to restore marriage equality to California. Drawing on techniques honed for decades by progressive social movements, Camp Courage teaches empowerment, team building, leadership development, and grassroots organizing skills. The event is geared toward activists or those who have never engaged with the broader community about marriage equality as well as veteran LGBT activists and allies.
