Dear Friends,
It is time to say good-bye to 2020, and look toward the possibilities 2021 offers toward justice for immigrants and communities impacted by incarceration. As we welcome a new year and a new administration, our work is far from complete. Now is the moment to deepen our faith and sharpen our organizing skills!
East Bay Housing Organizations, Faith Alliance for a Moral Economy, Interfaith Movement for Human Integrity, and Oakland Peace Center are offering a Two-Day Faith-Rooted Organizing Training, January 8 & 9. This will be an opportunity to come together and discern how to organize for a better tomorrow.
WHO: All people wanting to deepen their spiritually-rooted non-violent organizing, direct action, and change-making. Previous experience not required!
