What is Organizing for Power?

Organizing for Power (O4P) is an online training programme for organizers worldwide. Since its creation in 2019 as a joint collaboration between the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation and US-based organizer Jane McAlevey, O4P has trained more than 35,000 people from 1,400+ organizations in over 110 countries. The programme’s skills-focused curriculum — highlighted by our six-week Core Fundamentals training — teaches its participants how to build disciplined majorities capable of winning measurable victories through well-planned campaigns.

O4P’s core programmes are available in many languages, including but not limited to Arabic, English, French, German, Hindi, Portuguese, and Spanish, and is completely free to all organizing groups of 10+ people, because we firmly believe that we’re only going to win the change this world needs if we’re in the fight together. Occasional one-off programs like What Winning Looks Like and The Fight of Our Lives are made available to a general audience to introduce them to our way of working and theory of change.
