RootSkills Conference

The goal of the RootSkills Conference is to create synergy among community organizers working towards environmental, social and economic justice. Workshop sessions highlight trends, best practices, and solutions-based tools by and for community organizers. A planning committee representing a broad range of lived experiences helps design the event and an open call for workshops sessions creates space for new leadership, new voices to work towards co-created learning objectives.  


Registration opens September 4

The Grassroots Fund is seeking grounded organizers, educators, nonprofits, and sustainable businesses to facilitate workshops for the RootSkills Conference.
