Labor Training Program: New Jersey National Education Association Candidate Training

Wellstone Action's Labor Program (WALP) partners with progressive labor organizations committed to building a political infrastructure, leadership and capacity within International Unions, local unions and community partners. We take an integrated approach to organizing and advocacy, with the capacity and ability to customize trainings to fit the specific needs of our partners. Union grassroots organizing, advocacy, and electoral work need to be better integrated so that electoral infrastructure and mobilizing capacity do not come and go with each electoral cycle, and that community and political relationships built during election cycles provide foundations for more effective union organizing and advocacy work outside the electoral arena.
