jusTalk: Life at the Intersections

Friday, 9:00am | River

This movement toward collective liberation cannot happen unless we embrace life at the intersections. “jusTalk: Community Organizing through Faith” reclaims the essence of faith, lifting it out of the confines of Christianity, to make the practice of our faith the foundation of community organizing. This presentation lives at the intersection of Community Organizing and Faith. It hones the skills of community organizers and empowers others to become organizers. It is also interactive, teaching listeners the gift of personal story and demonstrating why it is our most powerful tool for community organizing. Participants do not have to believe in any god to benefit from this presentation.
