Midwest Academy’s commitment in this moment in history is to provide training and other forms of strategic support to those groups that are organizing to build power in communities of color and low-income and working-class communities and constituencies. Our work is intended to support the development of self-determined, democratically governed organizations that win real improvements in people’s lives and help build the broader movement for justice.
