D4D on the Road 2011-2012

From October 2011 to February 2012, Project Pericles held D4D on the Road training workshops at 12 Periclean colleges and universities. These workshops built on the success of the D4D on the Road workshops of the 2010-2011 academic year, and trained more than 500 college students, faculty, administrators, alumni, and community leaders from more than 20 Periclean colleges and universities to actively participate in the democratic process. Each 6-hour workshop helped attendees learn concrete tools for successful organizing and advocacy, including values-based messaging, analyzing root causes, identifying targets and tactics, and strategic planning. By the end of the day, participants were able to identify new strategies for making change on a particular issue or cause, practice developing and delivering an effective advocacy message, and build relationships to support and sustain their work.

The workshops were led by The Center for Progressive Leadership (CPL), a national nonpartisan training institute based in Washington, D.C. that has trained over 5,000 diverse leaders.

Since 2008, Project Pericles has brought these important workshops to 28 Periclean campuses across the United States. The workshops are open to students, faculty, administrators, alumni, and community leaders.

Project Pericles appreciates the generous support of The Henry Luce Foundation.
