Join us for our two-day Leadership Institute for Public Life training! Learn our organizing model and to be part of our work for the common good.
Two Sundays, September 18 & 25, 1-5 pm
The Institute provides content based on the philosophy and practices developed by the Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF) in over 70 years of organizing experience. The topics include:
▪ Why organize? – Examine the history, traditions, and values of our labor, faith, community and educational organizations.
▪ Fundamental organizing skills – Learn tools to conduct individual relational meetings, listening sessions, research, negotiations and action to help obtain a concrete, winnable outcome.
▪ Strengthening our institutions – Engage people systematically in a culture that is relational, action-oriented and reflective.
▪ Problems vs. issues – Focus from general problems to concrete, winnable issues by using relational power in the public arena to negotiate for the common good.
