As a leader with a variety of student groups: MEChA, UNICEF, USAS (United Students Against Sweatshops), etc., and as a professional organizer: CALPIRG (California Public Interest Research Group), Environment California, and the Los Angeles Homeless Services Coalition, David A. Romero is equipped with the knowledge and experience to help others consolidate and expand their organizations and grassroots political campaigns. 


In a speech/training filled with humorous anecdotes and insight gathered from years of organizing, Romero provides tips for recruitment, coalition-building, media outreach, and leadership development. 


Activism 101 culminates in a breakout session where students are divided into groups and tasked with creating mock campaigns (based on real situations at college campuses across the country) that will incorporate the skills presented. 


Activism 101 empowers students, giving them the organizational tools to become leaders on campus and in their communities. They will learn how to bring the change they want to see in the world!
