Common Good Action Project: Building Capacity for Social Justice Action in Nonprofit Service Organizations

Thursday, June 22, 2017: 10:30 AM-11:30 AM
Tiber Creek AB (Grand Hyatt Washington)
Five nonprofit organizations that serve persons experiencing homelessness in Albuquerque NM participated in the Common Good Action Project to examine how their organizations are aligned and equipped to take action for effective social justice policy advocacy, and how to build collective capacity for change. Project tools designed to stimulate understanding and shared learning about readiness and capacity-building will be practiced in this workshop.  How to strengthen client engagement as a critical strategy for social justice action is explored, both as a challenge for organizations and as an opportunity for mentoring other organizations to achieve effective collaboration for change.
