Promoting justice, peace, and reconciliation
"Power comes from only two things; organized money and organized people.
We don't have any money- that's why we need organized people."
The Justice Factory website and blog were established to fill an urgent need: to provide a place where regular folks can go to get free information, guidance, and technical support for their grassroots organizations and their communities.
This website and it's associated blog, and the resources and training described here, can help us to build the kind of America that is a true reflection of its people.
Use of this website is free and fully open to the general public. In order to be listed here these resources must meet two criteria:
1- They must be of high-quality
2- They must be free of charge, or offered at very low cost.
There are abundant free resources available to groups seeking to organize. However, it is difficult to find training workshop materials that local groups can easily obtain, afford and implement. To fill this need, The Justice Factory has created a comprehensive training program covering all aspects of grassroots community organizing.
This curriculum, which is in the form of Powerpoint©
The curriculum can also be presented by a trained community organizer. While the organizer-led training is not free, the cost is very low, and it is provided as a public service.
