Building Relationships • Developing Leaders • Acting for Justice

The development and exercise of people’s power can be learned. The Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF) has been training people in the skills needed for over 80 years. In the spring of 2021, in the midst of the continuing triple-headed crisis of health pandemic, economic inequality, and racial reckoning, affiliates of the Metro IAF in states bordering the Great Lakes offered four two-hour (with breaks, breakout rooms, and a 10-minute evaluation) Zoom training sessions.

NOTE: “101” sessions were aimed at newer leaders and “201” sessions were aimed at more experienced leaders who have already received training on a particular skill or topic and want to go deeper. Future trainings will be announced on the LCU website.
