Organizing Toolkit & Online Game

Sometimes organizing feels like you’re playing the game. But, what if it really was a game? The Center for Third World Organizing -- a racial-justice organization known for creating powerful organizing training and movement building for and by communities of color -- supported the creation of the Community Organizing Toolkit, an interactive game for learning organizing skills.

Our favorite aspect -- the skill of getting a hard commit takes organizers time to master with lots of slammed doors and disappointing event turn out. How do you judge when someone's "yes," actually means "probs not," and when to push harder to get real lasting commits? Try it out with the cast of characters in your interactive door knocking experience. They may hate on you in the virtual world, but when you're done, you'll be able to distinguish between a soft and hard commit and know when to push beyond these barriers in the real world.
