    Building Power for the Common Good Workshop

     

    This workshop will delve into exploring a tried and tested framework for bringing about transformative change.

    "I sat in a room on a sunny spring Saturday with members and organizations from all walks of life. In many ways, we are so very different from each other and yet we discovered the ways in which we are united. We listened to each other respectfully and really connected in a deeply personal way. Tears and laughter abounded. Many of us spoke of our concern for future generations. I spoke of my desire for my nieces, nephews and young friends to feel heard and respected. When I think of the world they will grow up in, I feel fear and sadness. These tiny amazing people deserve a better world than this –  I want to be part of creating that for them."

    Courtney Baldwin of the UVic Graduate Students' Society attended our spring training

     

     

    Through exploring the traditions and values of our labour, faith, community, environmental and educational organizations, we'll learn how to create strong foundations to be able to hold government and corporate interests in Greater Victoria to account.

    We'll learn about the need to build relationships with diverse organizations in order to have the power to win. You will have the chance to practice some of the fundamental tools of relational organizing.

    We'll show you how these tools can help strengthen your organization and engage your members. We'll take you on the journey to understand how these tools will lead us to concrete, winnable action.

     

     

    Fri Sep 21st (evening) AND Sat Sep 22nd (all day). It is important that you attend both sessions as they build on each other.

    FREE for member organizations. $50 for non-member organizations (fee can be deducted from your dues when you join).
