Training, coaching, and community building for a more equitable and socially just British Columbia.
Our work focuses on strengthening four key pillars of organizing.
The attention of decision-makers, volunteers, and donors is in high demand. Campaigns that rise to the top are told through stories that connect to shared values.
Raising awareness and putting out press releases is rarely enough. Winning campaigns in our media-saturated world requires people power.
On modern social change campaigns field organizing and digital organizing have merged. We meet supporters both at their doorstep and on their smartphone.
To build a just world, we need to build just movements, organizations, and campaigns.

"Without the support from Organize BC, Dogwood’s organizing network would be years behind where they are now."
Former Director of Organizing, Dogwood BC
Now more than ever our movement needs the skills to navigate intersectional coalitions and spaces. This means understanding our privilege, being aware of how we interact with others, shifting our own behaviour, and changing how our campaigns show up in communities.
In Inclusive Movement-Building we will begin to explore how racism, sexism, homophobia, ableism and other systems of oppression can show up in our social movements, and provide tools to support organizers in building more inclusive movements -- by understanding our own relationships to systems of oppression, and learning practical skills to make spaces more inclusive.
