In the July 2011 cover story, "A Web of Power," Jeannie Choi mentions the New Organizing Institute Education Fund (NOI), a training institute for online organizers. The NOI holds "boot camps" for organizers who are interested in learning the skills and tools needed to execute strong, effective online advocacy campaigns. Participants do not only learn in seminar-like classrooms, but also put the lessons into practice by executing mock organizing campaigns during their time at the boot camp.

Sojourners Comment Community Covenant

I will express myself with civility, courtesy, and respect for every member of the Sojourners online community, especially toward those with whom I disagree, even if I feel disrespected by them. (Romans 12:17-21)

I will express my disagreements with other community members' ideas without insulting, mocking, or slandering them personally. (Matthew 5:22)

I will not exaggerate others' beliefs nor make unfounded prejudicial assumptions based on labels, categories, or stereotypes. I will always extend the benefit of the doubt. (Ephesians 4:29)

I will hold others accountable by clicking "report" on comments that violate these principles, based not on what ideas are expressed but on how they're expressed. (2 Thessalonians 3:13-15)

I understand that comments reported as abusive are reviewed by Sojourners staff and are subject to removal. Repeat offenders will be blocked from making further comments. (Proverbs 18:7)
