The Leadership Development Program helps worker and community organizations conduct their work more strategically. Among our many classes are Strategic Campaigns Workshop; Strategic Research Workshop; a Lead Organizer Institute; the C.L. Dellums African American Leadership School; and a Spanish-language Latino Leadership Institute. We are developing a set of projects to explore the intersection of work and mass incarceration with a particular focus on the growing Black population in Contra Costa County. We also provide technical assistance to worker centers, unions and community organizations focused on worker issues.

“Excellent training opportunity for trades organizers to advance their skills. The trainings helped to advance my sense of “uphill battles” that we will encounter in the future.”
