Daylong Workshop, Annual Conference and Monthly Webinars
The Grassroots Fund RootSkills Training Series, hosted by the New England Grassroots Environment Fund, is a series of monthly webinars, in-person trainings, and an annual conference designed by and for grassroots community organizers. These trainings provide skills-building and networking opportunities to community organizers in New England (& beyond!), reaching over 1000 people in 2017.
The RootSkills Training Series theme - Building Resilient Communities - brings together students, community organizers, funders, nonprofits, and sustainable businesses who are working to address social justice challenges and improve community health, community resilience, and the environment in New England. Now more than ever, it is critical that organizers work together to build a shared vision for a more just and sustainable region!
