2-Day Training: Faith-Rooted Organizing
January 8 & 9

This event will take place via zoom, with scheduled breaks and time for lunch. Plan to attend the full two-day training to get the most of this experience.
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!
WHAT: This two-part training will deepen your understanding of the theory and skills of how to be an impactful organizer. It will help you to tap into your organizing values, motivations, and visions. It will help you more fully integrate the gifts of your faith and religious practices into your social justice work. Grounded in a feminist framework and non-violent resistance, it will connect you to a rich organizing model and ethos that grows out of the civil rights movement, international liberation struggles, and labor rights movement in the U.S.
For participants who can, we ask for a $30-75 donation for the two day training.No one will be turned away for lack of funds. Payment can be made here.Sponsored by: East Bay Housing Organization, Interfaith Movement for Human Integrity, Faith Alliance for a Moral Economy and Oakland Peace Center.
