Organizing for Power: The Core Fundamentals takes place on 6 consecutive Tuesdays from the 10th of May until the 14th of June.

Registration is free and open exclusively to groups of 10+. The course is given in 7 languages and there is no charge.

The program runs twice daily for our global audience. Find your local start time for Session A or for Session B.


Our fifth full-length O4P training will focus on the five core organizing fundamentals:

  • leader identification, or: understanding who can move people (it’s often not who you first think);
  • semantics, or: the words we use matter – they have to center each worker’s active participation as key to winning;
  • structured organizing conversations, or: what it takes to recruit the hardest-to-recruit leaders;
  • charting, or: a simple method to understand human social relationships, and to prioritize and systematize outreach;
  • structure tests, or: mini campaigns to build solidarity and site structure, and to know when you are ready to win.

These essential skills serve as the building blocks of all winning campaigns. The Core Fundamentals uses the same curriculum as past Organizing for Power trainings for the simple reason that the fundamentals of success do not change; the real key is our ability to master them.

Since September 2019, O4P has hosted nearly 25,000 organizers from 110 countries. 75% of these attendees have been first-time O4P participants, while the rest are returning participants who understand that practice makes perfect. After all, if our lead trainer Jane McAlevey never stops practicing the fundamentals, then neither should you. In The Core Fundamentals, she and a growing team of trainers from across the globe will lead you through a program to better prepare you for the struggles, and victories, to come.

Over these past two years, the vast majority of our graduates have taken this program together with an organizing group, and most of them have used O4P to strengthen their existing campaign. We hope that this time will be no different. Registration is free and open exclusively to groups of 10+. Larger organizations should consider enrolling 30, 50, or even 100+ members.

Our registration form is designed exclusively for people willing to serve as the contact person for their group of 10+. This person will be responsible for registering their group’s members and serving as the point person in all subsequent communications with the O4P team.

Groups of 25+ will additionally need to provide breakout facilitators to assist the O4P team during training sessions. These breakout facilitators will be asked to attend one preparatory training and have access to a Zoom Pro account or equivalent platform enabling small group breakout assignments. Large groups interested in taking the program should write to us at for more details.

Registration is open to groups of 10+ from now until the 3rd of May. If you don’t yet have 10 people, you still have time to get them together. After all, we are only going to win if we’re in this together. So talk to your people now, and get ready to join a growing global community of people organizing for power.

If you have additional questions, contact us at We look forward to hearing from and seeing you soon.
