REMINDER: Camp Courage Coming to Fresno, CA

REMINDER: Don't forget to apply for Camp Courage, this time held in Fresno, CA. There's not much time left before March 7th! You don't want to miss out!

Read UTF's review of Camp Courage in Los Angeles and find out why I think you should go.


Camp Courage Fresno has been confirmed by the Courage Campaign. Having attended the Los Angeles session, I found it to be extremely informative, educational and proactive, and keeping to its "Respect-Empower-Include" mission. I highly recommend attendance if you can make it. (More Camp Courage sessions are in the works in other parts of the state).

Camp Courage is designed primarily for new activists or those who have never engaged with the broader community about marriage equality as well as veteran LGBT activists and allies.

WHAT: Camp Courage, for activists and organizers working to repeal Prop 8
WHERE: Fresno, venue provided via email after application is confirmed
WHEN: Saturday, March 7 (8:30 a.m.- 5:30 p.m.) AND Sunday, March 8 (8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m.)
NOTE: There will be a reception on Saturday night, location TBA.

Camp Courage will cover basic community and political organizing skills, including:

* Finding your voice by telling your “story of self”
* Leadership development
* Principles of successful organizing
* Developing collaboration and building effective teams
* Techniques of voter persuasion
* Organizing a phonebank
