In these challenging times, we need to deepen our faith and sharpen our organizing skills!
We invite you to our upcoming Faith Rooted Organizing training on Sunday March 12, 2:00-5:30 and Monday March 13, 9:00 am-4:00 p.m. in Oakland.
This training is for clergy, lay leaders, and spiritually-motivated social change agents. This two-part training will deepen your understanding of the theory and skills of how to be an effective organizer in the world. It will help you to tap into your own deep values, motivations and visions. It will help you more fully integrate the gifts of your own faith and religious practices into your social justice work. It will connect you to a rich organizing model and ethos that grows out of the civil rights movement, liberation struggles in other countries and worker justice struggles in the U.S.
This training has proven transformative to the veteran and novice social justice advocate alike. It is an effective way to energize yourself and others in your congregation or network and help build a common framework and ethos among colleagues. Faith Rooted Organizing invites us to move beyond winning campaigns and calls us closer to our goal of building the beloved community—which we urgently need to live into.
Sponsored by: Faith Alliance for a Moral Economy, The Oakland Peace Center & Interfaith Movement for Human Integrity. The training is $25 – $75 (sliding scale). To register email Kristi@workingeastbay.
