EVENT – Coalition Building

A Series of Workshops...

 

 

  We know you are deeply concerned about the direction our community and our country is going and you are working to change it. That's why we're inviting you to join a select group of activists in an exciting series of programs!

 

 

Monday, March 29th - 7-9:30pm

 

 

Election 2004:  Can You Hear My Group’s Voice?

 

Where:  Downtown Community Forum at the Dugan Center at St. Mary’s Church—15 St. Mary’s Place (Across from GEVA Theater)

 

Why:  The purpose of this program is to sharpen our skills to change the political climate to one that puts people at the center. We will use the 2004 Presidential Election as a vehicle.

 

What:  Coalitions, particularly those interested in  justice issues , often fall apart because different groups have such varied experiences and  hurts  that it becomes difficult to have a common agenda.  We will listen to the voices of many groups—including YOUR voice—and look at how to build support across diverse concerns.

 

Registration:  $12 non-student, $4 student — Scholarships available.  (Workshop fee includes fair-traded coffee & dessert).  Please send your check to NCBI/Upstate NY in care of the Downtown Community Forum / 15 St. Mary’s Place / Rochester, NY 14607 by March 20, 2004.

Election 2004:  Choosing Who Will Lead Us—Skills For Advocacy & Connection

 

Where:  Downtown Community Forum at the Dugan Center at St. Mary’s Church—15 St. Mary’s Place (Across from GEVA Theater)

 

Why:  The purpose of this program is to sharpen our skills to change the political climate to one that puts people at the center. We will use the 2004 Presidential Election as a vehicle.

 

What:  We will listen to each other to find out who’s backing whom & why.  And we will continue the work of building an effective, mutually supportive core of activists in our community.  Some of you were part of a workshop last may held at St. Joseph’s Motherhouse,  Nourishing Ourselves to Heal the World.  We listened to what you said you wanted in concrete skills and this is the result.
