Organizing Praxis Lab

The Organizing Praxis Lab is a year-long training program, sponsored by the Pace Center for Civic Engagement and the University Center for Human Values, is designed for activists with a passion for social justice. Led by Princeton graduate students and former professional community organizers, the Organizing Praxis Lab helps participants learn and hone the skills of organizing. 

A group of 25 undergraduate, graduate, and community partners were selected to participate in the first Organizing Praxis Lab during the 2017-2018 academic year. The lab features monthly training sessions paired with a public speaker series.
