Being and Creating the Change at Home: Interfaith Organizing Training

Room 606
Description: 
This session will equip participants with tools and a plan, based on guiding organizing principles. Those tools will build capacity and leadership for when participants return to pursue inclusion, reconciliation, and change in their individual contexts. Diverse communities and complex contexts will require participants to be more attentive to one another, committed to listening deeply to motivations, and inclined toward building and working in coalition. This session will look at a critical and fundamental skills and hear the case studies of two international, non-governmental organizations and their experience with interfaith organizing for environmental issues. A true shift in the framework for equity and justice for our Earth and people requires a close look in the methodology we use to treat each other and the space we are creating for leaders to rise and develop and lead.
