The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan, political organization encouraging informed and active participation in government. It influences public policy through education and advocacy.
Citizen Academy Boot Camp on Organizing is for newly-motivated citizens and rising leaders, sponsored by the League of Women Voters in partnership with the Womens March Coalition of East Tennessee. We'll help you learn how to organize for change in this new era of polarization, and start-up or rev-up organizations that can influence critical local or national issues. You'll interact with community leaders and hear their lessons for success, and later choose from specialized subjects like social media tools and fundraising. We're also partnering with the Women's March Coalition of East Tennessee to bring you the latest online organizing tools and strategies.

The course takes place over three Tuesday evenings in May, from 6:00 - 8:30 pm. All classes are held in downtown Knoxville and parking is free and easy in nearby lots.
Bill Murrah, organizer of 30 years with Knoxville Legal Aid and expert on nonprofit organizations.
