JwJ’s annual Taproot Training is coming up again! Held every year with a diverse group of participants
from students to rank and file workers, this training provides insight into value-based organizing’s key concepts and skills.
In the words of 2012 Taproot participant Jimmy Perry, “Taproot training taught me to be more patient, that you can't
change things overnight, or with one action. You need to build a movement. It also taught me how to engage people
in a way that doesn't have to be confrontational, how to listen and build relationships. It was very challenging and
took me out of my comfort zone, which happens in real situations, and made me more prepared for them.”
2013 Taproot Training September 20, 21, 22
Location: DC 47, 1606 Walnut St.
