Working Together

1) Several of the organizers and all the trainers should meet well in advance to plan the training. Depending on the situation, the organizers may need to go back to the group for further decision making. The trainers questions may help the organizers understand what more they need to do to prepare the group for the training.

Intro to section

Planning and facilitating nonviolence training requires a range of tasks, which should be shared by a number of people.

First of all, the campaign organizers need to be aware of when training is needed. Does the group need training in strategic campaign development or gender sensitivity? Is training needed to prepare a new group of people to participate in nonviolent actions, or an experienced group to achieve new skills? Do affinity groups need training in group process?
