Register for the Summer Institute 2016!


Registration is open!

The 2016 Texas Rising Summer Institute will take place in Austin from Friday, July 29 to Sunday, July 31.

As our movement grows, so does our need for strategic and high capacity leadership. The 2016 Texas Rising Summer Institute is the event for TFN student activists to take their organizing knowledge and skills to the next level.

This years training will focus on the history of the progressive movement and what’s at stake in the 2016 election. Together we’ll explore our values and what it means to be a progressive. We’ll cover the rich history of grassroots movements in Texas, especially as they relate to systems of power and oppression. With an understanding of our movement’s past, we’ll focus on developing a collaborative plan to build power in our communities and at the polls in November.

As always, TFN recognizes the need to make these trainings accessible to all of our student leaders. TFN will cover 100% of travel, lodging and food during the event.
