Organize BC

Our mission is to strengthen the skills and connections of progressive organizers across BC through training, coaching and community-building.

Organize BC began in 2013 out of a desire to help people be better organizers. That summer, a group of organizers from across BC started meeting for potlucks around kitchen tables, over beers on bar patios, in backyards, and in living rooms across the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island. They were asking themselves some big questions: How can we be more effective? How can we support and train new organizers? And what would it look like to do this work together? Organize BC was born out of these conversations.

Collaboration across projects, organizations and regions has been one of Organize BC's core values since the beginning. We pool the progressive movement’s most valuable resources - our people's skills and knowledge - to run capacity building programs for people across BC: trainings, workshops, conferences and coaching programs.
