About This Course

Coalition building is the fastest way to build the power you need to win elections. How can you convince other leaders and groups to join your coalition?

In this workshop, you will learn a variety of techniques to use both in the short term and in the long term to grow a strong, long-lasting coalition. Some of the techniques you will learn come from Jane McAlevey, one of the most successful union organizers in the last 30 years.


In order to take this course, you must have already taken Strategize Your City.
