1st LEO INTENSIVE MRNY COHORT

In the Summer of 2015, Make the Road NY, with support from the Center for Popular Democracy, hosted the first cohort of the LEO Intensive. This LEO intensive was completely bilingual in Spanish/English thanks to our partnership with Caracol Interpretation.

The various sessions of LEO were held at Garrison Institute, North Star Fund, and at the offices of the Center for Popular Democracy.

2nd LEO MINI SERIES

LEO Mini Series

specifically designed to meet the

needs of intermediate organizers.

In 2017, we designed a specific LEO Mini Series for a small cadre of MRNY staff with intermediary organizing skills. We covered key Embodied Organizing topics over the course of 2 months that resulted in stronger, more skilled organizers.
