More Than an Ounce of Prevention: Building Capacity to Fight Privatization

This informational webinar is designed to give locals an ounce of prevention and more. It focuses on building the capacity to thwart privatization.

At a Glance

This webinar starts with the assumption that most members are not born activists, that activism is learned through experiences that escalate and gradually build the comfort level of individuals and locals. We start with simply attending the monthly school board meeting, but by the time we end, members, leaders, and staff will understand how we can build a bulwark against privatization from that foundation.
