Bringing together academics and trade union/community activists and organisers, Innovations in Organising 2019 is a key opportunity to discuss new ideas and tactics, emerging theories and their practical application in our struggles for equality, democracy and sustainability.
Hosted by the Ella Baker School of Organising and Critical Labour Studies, together with partners Unite Community, the format will be participant led, including short presentations, discussions and workshops.
As we enter a period of continued political instability, at a time when poverty is growing in our communities, we need to find effective ways to rebuild working class power. Innovations in Organising 2019 will shine a light on our brightest hopes.
