Relational Organizing Training

At Red Wine & Blue, we are all about relational organizing — the simple, proven concept that people talking to their friends and family is more effective than strangers talking to strangers. Relational organizing is the most effective way to spread a message, persuade someone, and to get people to show up to vote. Below you’ll find training about relational organizing and how you can use it to enhance your group’s impact.
