• Established by MoveOn.org in November 2005
• Grassroots program that trains young political organizers to work for progressive campaigns and organizations

On November 22, 2005, MoveOn.org Executive Director Eli Pariser announced that his group had created the New Organizing Institute (NOI), “a unique grassroots program that trains young, technology-enabled political organizers to work for progressive campaigns and organizations.” Victory in the 2006 midterm elections was NOI’s immediate priority. Said Pariser: “The Internet has made huge changes in politics … Now, our [MoveOn’s] former Organizing Director Zack Exley is working on cultivating the next generation of ‘online organizers’ at the New Organizing Institute.
