Description

IT'S TIME TO STEP UP

The U.S. has historically struggled with issues related to race, religion, sexual orientation and gender identity, and socioeconomic class differences. Many people have been unaware these issues, while others have always encountered these issues in their daily lived experiences. Concerned peopl of all identities are coming together today out of a renewed sense of urgency to build skills to take action on these issues.

ENHANCE YOUR SKILLS

We invite you to join this 3-session, skill-building program in Social Justice Leadership. This program aims to bring together a multicultural group of 18 people, diverse in race, gender, and age as well as in experience and influence with varieties of formal and informal local leadership (in community, neighborhood, church, school, advocacy group,
and so forth).
