the Alliance for Global Justice, < > to achieve 
social change and economic justice by helping to build a stronger, 
more unified grassroots movement. We recognize that the 
concentration of wealth and power is the root cause of oppression 
requiring us to work together across ideologies, issues and 
communities. The Alliance nurtures organizations seeking 
fundamental change in international and national conditions that 
disempower people, create disparities in access to wealth and 
power, poison the earth, and plunder its resources. We support 
locally-based grassroots organizing by sharing political analysis, 
mobilizing for direct action, monitoring the centers of corporate and 
government power, expanding channels of communications, and 
sharing skills and infrastructure. Our commitment to solidarity and 
to non-hierarchical democratic process enables us to respectfully 
listen and respond to each other within the movement. As a 501c3 
non profit organization the Alliance for Global Justice (AFGJ) acts 
as fiscal sponsor for approximately 20 unincorporated projects.   
This communication announces one of its latest initiatives.  AFGJ 
will host a series of workshops geared to help practitioners in the 
community economic development arena, the coop arena, and from 
other socially responsible groups to understand the basics of 
organizational management. The first workshop will be 
Understanding Accounting for Non Profits. February, 7, 14, 21 and 
28, Thursday evenings from 6 to 7:30 pm at the AFGJ office 
located at 1247  E Street SE Wash DC 20003.  The objective of 
this workshop is to enable participants to develop fundamental 
skills in using and understanding financial information and the 
accounting tools necessary to the successful management of any 
business or organization.  We will cover the following topics: 
balance sheets, income statements, cash flow statements, internal 
controls, nonprofit accounting issues, audits and good financial 
practices. Emphasis will be on developing practical skills that can 
be used to improve the financial management of community based
