Mass trainings support movements to make sure new participants know the basic information (the movement’s basic story, strategy, and structure) and skills they need to act on behalf of the movement with both autonomy and unity.
The webinar will be led by Dani Moscovitch, a founding member and national organizer with IfNotNow, a momentum driven movement led by young Jews working to transform the American Jewish community's support for the occupation in Israel/Palestine into a call for freedom and dignity for all. In particular, she is a lead architect of IfNotNow's decentralized mass training program, which has trained over 1500 leaders (and counting) at 1 and 2 day trainings in 14 cities, led by 200+ volunteer trainers and 30+ volunteer coaches. With the support of the momentum community and Cosecha, Dani was part of the core team that spent a year applying momentum theory to craft IfNotNow’s story, strategy and decentralized structure before relaunching with a mass training program in December 2015. Before IfNotNow, Dani organized low and moderate income senior citizens around healthcare, transportation and housing as Boston Chapter Organizer at Massachusetts Senior Action Council. She was an organizing fellow at the Jewish Organizing Institute and Network (JOIN for Justice) in 2013.
