PeoplesHub Workshop – Connect online as an individual

Turning Dreams into Action: Strategies and Roadmaps to Transform our Communities

Have you ever felt that you were just doing the same things or applying the same tactics over and over again? Has your group hit a rut or is having trouble deciding your next way forward? Are you longing for deeper conversations about how power in your community or group can be built? Join us for this two-part series on turning our dreams into action. Together we will deepen our understanding of popular education and organizing, analyze what is happening in your groups, and come up with ideas for moving your group forward.

These workshop is offered in two parts. Participants need to attend both.

April-May sessions:

Halima Cassells, Detroit-based artist, community advocate and PeoplesHub Trainer

Jeanne Rewa, experiential trainer, facilitator, and organizer trained by Training for Change, and PeoplesHub Trainer

Training Length and Type:

120 minutes — Connect as an individual

Part 1: Wednesday, April 24 at 9am PT / 11am CT / 12pm ET
