"You don’t change the world with the ideas in your mind, but with the conviction in your heart." -Bryan Stevenson
P.S 305 is building leaders.
Sign-up for an upcoming training to learn more about how advocacy and organizing can change the world.
Advocacy & Organizing Fundamentals Training
The word "advocacy" is often used as a catch-all to describe many different activities. When done right, advocacy can lead to sustainable, systemic change in a city. But too often, organizations are just making things up as they go. P.S. 305 believes that advocacy is both an art and a science, and must be grounded in evidence-based methodologies. That is why we created our Advocacy & Organizing Fundamentals training. Whether you are already in the advocacy space or just have a curiosity about the concept, our training will give allow you to pursue a rigorous approach to advocacy and organizing.
