Training Resources

Below is a list of trainings and resources that we’ve been drawing from and using for many years. There are plenty more training and resourcesout there, but think of this as a list for getting ideas for your work. We drew pretty heavily upon the Midnight Special Law Collective’s resources as well as those of the ubiquitous Lisa Fithian. Both have contributed greatly to our work. 

If there are resources or agendas you would like to see listed here, please email us and let us know.
