Activism and Organizing Resources

Activism and organizing are essential drivers of social change both on and off college campuses. Students have brought energy and vision to social change movements for generations. Northwestern has a deep history of activism, and we support students' rights to advocate, organize, and mobilize. 

LDCE provides programming to educate and train students in the skills of organizing and advocacy. There are also fantastic, free resources available online to help you think through organizing philosophies and ethics, building power, strategy and tactics, messaging, coalition building, lobbying, and organizational development. 

If you are planning a demonstration or bringing speakers to campus as part of your campaign, you should familiarize yourself with Northwestern's policies.
