This Civics for Educators and Youth Workers workshop is tailored to support folks who have completed or plan to complete our Systemic Racism Legacy Education course and are interested in ways to build organizing skills and combining those skills with their classroom and program work. Due to a high demand of folks wanting to take this course who have not taken our courses, we are now opening it up to a the general public.
The evening is an offering that was built in partnership with JetPac and will feature local officials who work to the goal of engaging progressives in supporting POC leaders becoming elected officials and changing the representation of our local government in Cambridge and beyond! Almost the entire proceeds of this evening will aid in their funding to continue the work!
The event will include:
— Modelable anecdotes for community organizing success in Cambridge (including immigrant advocacy, bike lanes, and the Foundry Building)
— Life cycle of a successful affinity group (including recruitment, messaging, web presence, leadership, conflict, longevity, community engagement, elected official relationship building, administrators to drive your issue)
— Q&A session for trouble shooting and building
