The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Resources for Organizers.

Pengelly, Kim.

Around the country, the shortage of community organizers has prompted the development of innovative recruiting and training strategies. Organizers in Minnesota thought it would be helpful to have information about the training opportunities now available for both new and experienced organizers. In response, CURA has assembled this directory of detailed information about training courses, apprenticeships, internships, and volunteer services. Recruitment and referral networks are also included along with places where technical assistance can be obtained. The directory provides information for organizers seeking further training, for young people interested in exploring organizing as an occupation, for directors of organizations looking for ways to recruit new organizing staff, and for organizations needing specialized technical assistance ranging from updated telephone technology to community economic development to no violence training.
