Activist Training Series – All Hands on Deck
The Sierra Club is working towards a just future–not just for the natural environment, but also for the people who live within it. Involving citizen activists in the political process has always been our strength – a strength we cannot take for granted. We must make an effort to recruit people who reflect the full diversity of the communities in which we are working. This will be increasingly true as the demographics of the country continue to reflect a more racially and economically diverse population. We can only succeed through strong and collaborative relationships with diverse organizations and communities based on common goals and values. Join us to learn how to foster the inclusive and powerful movement necessary to win victories that benefit everyone.
Participants will leave ready to:
– Define the terms Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and understand why this work is important to the Club
– Develop a more intentional and inclusive outreach plan through thorough community mapping
– Identify practices for initiating and developing effective partnerships with new communities
