Why is Chicago so corrupt? What does a community organizer do? How can you help someone run for local office? What is a TIF and how does it impact your community? Get the answers - and much MORE - at the POWER Institute's Fall 2018 workshop series! The CivicLab has launched the POWER Institute (People Organizing to Win, Engage & Resist) to get you TRAINED to ORGANIZE and WIN a Chicago and a world that we all deserve and can prosper in. Our trainers are super experienced in grassroots democracy with over 60 years of public campaigns between them! In this session, we will be exploring: Did you know Chicago is the home of modern community organizing? What does a a community organizer do? Learn the basic skills and mindsets of a community change maker. This will be a highly interactive and hands-on session as you construct a Power Matrix for a real campaign around electing a civilian police oversight board. "Power concedes nothing without a demand!"
