This is the same cycle Cesar Chavez used to organize migrant farm workers in California and it is the same cycle COPS/Metro uses to organize in San Antonio. The organizing cycle consists mainly of identifying and training leaders within a community, listening to the issues that are most pressing and most widely and deeply felt within a community, taking actions to address those issues, and then learning from the outcomes of our collective actions. SA RISE has completed a full organizing cycle!!!
Identify & Train Leaders
See leaders that stand out from others.
Regional Strategy Team

Build Community (House Meetings)
