i am… a LEO Organizer!

By June 29, 2015August 25th, 2016LEO

Partnered with Make the Road NY, last friday marked the celebration + end of Leaders of Embodied Organizing’s first¬†11-week intensive. LEO graduated 14 organizers skilled in the embodied organizing model of community organizing. Developed by the Principle of Universal Partnership, Rusia N. Mohiuddin, the embodied organizing model puts in the center of our work the needed transformation of those making the work happen on the frontlines. By cultivating personal leadership with organizing skill sets, the LEO Intensive aimed to bring to the surface the fire in each of the LEO organizers, shine a bright light on their values + principles, + create alignment so their actions are that much more¬†powerful + impactful.

We accomplished a lot over the last 11 weeks but most importantly, we learned a lot from each other.

Over the next several weeks, we will share more about this amazing experience + will launch more official details on this much-needed intensive + how other organizers + organizations can participate in future offerings.
