BRIDGE Maryland LEADERSHIP, RELATIONSHIP BUILDING, ADVOCACY AND VOTER ENGAGEMENT TRAINING
JANUARY 17TH AND 18TH, 2020
Join your BRIDGE Maryland friends to gain skills for pursuing social justice goals and your self-interest in a 1.5 day workshop.
Angela James (Gamaliel Training Department and Consultant to Gamaliel southern states),DeMarco Davidson (Organizer, Metropolitan Congregations United, Gamaliel affiliate in metro St. Louis), and Cynthia Jarrold (National Policy Director/Development Coordinator for Gamaliel) will guide us in honing our skills:
There will be something for everyone -- folks who are new to faith-based community organizing and folks who have experience with it. This is a great opportunity to learn how to express our faith in effective action. BRIDGE MD is particularly concerned about juvenile justice and public education issues this year!
We shall start on Friday evening, 6-9, and resume for a full day (9-4) on Saturday. Supper, continental breakfast and lunch will be provided. There is no fee for this workshop!
As a result of this training, participants will be prepared to discuss important issues and propose solutions with our government leaders and members of our communities – during the Maryland General Assembly and beyond.
