This event is a community organizing training open to Faith Leaders, Organizers, Advocates, & People of Good Conscience that aim to be the change they want to see in 2019. Come walk in the foot steps of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and learn tools to organize your community. Community organizing is slow hard work or "spade work" as noted by organizer and colleague of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.; Ella Baker.

Join us to learn new tools and meet fellow organizers as we work to affirm the dignity and equality of all on our continued quest to build a beloved community.

This is a co-sponsored event between UCICC and Faith in New Jersey.

Faith in New Jersey (FINJ) is a multi-faith and multi-racial network of faith leaders and faith communities working together to advance a social and economic justice agenda at the local, state and federal level. Faith in New Jersey’s mission is to develop grassroots community leaders, analyze the policies that shape our communities, and mobilize faith voices and faith voters to effectively act on the prophetic call to build the Beloved Community.
