Southwest Organizing School

The Southwest Organizing School (SWO) is a project of the National Labor College. Unionists who live in or near the Southwest come to the school to learn skills and gather ideas to help build a stronger labor movement. Some students attend the Southwest Organizing School to take part in continuing education courses, others to begin to earn a bachelor’s degree.  Whatever the reason, the Southwest Organizing School is a great resource for sharpening skills and gaining valuable knowledge.
