Faith-Rooted Organizing Workshop
September 15 from 9:30 am - 4:30 pm$25
On September 15th, Episcopal City Mission is hosting a Faith Rooted Organizing workshop for individuals and groups from congregations. This day-long training and community building will help you develop the skills, spiritual grounding and strategies for your community to respond to injustice. In this urgent moment when the effects of racism are impacting our immigration and mass incarceration systems and we experience regular threats to civil liberties, we invite you to join us for prayer, community building, and action to learn faith-rooted approaches to organizing. Come and share what you are learning so that we have the tools to respond in a prayerful, skillful and powerful manner.
We will cover the following topics:
- Grounding our justice work in spiritual wisdom and practice
- How to tell your story and share it to build relationships
- Dynamics of power and how we build power for the purpose of justice
- How systems of racism perpetuate injustice in Massachusetts
- Ways of taking action to transform injustice
When: Saturday, September 15th from 9:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m
Where: The Cathedral of St. Paul at 138 Tremont Street – Sproat Hall
Suggested Donation: $25 per person for food and materials
