The application period is now open for the free Faith-Rooted Organizing Leadership Cohort sponsored by CLUE – Clergy and Laity United for Economic Justice – from January through May 2022. Participants will meet once or twice a month over five months to connect their faith or spiritual values with economic, social, and racial justice advocacy work alongside communities in Los Angeles or Orange Counties.
Participants are encouraged to bring their own religious or spiritual values and traditions into our interfaith discussions as we address how we can help effect real, life-changing justice in our communities. The sessions will be guided by the leadership of those who are impacted the most by the violence in our society.
Who is this cohort intended for?
What is this cohort about?
Building a multigenerational and multicultural learning community committed to pursuing justice that is rooted in their own faiths/spiritual values.
Topics will include but are not limited to:
Where does this cohort meet?
Depending on the needs of most of the participants, the cohort could be in-person or a hybrid of virtual and in-person meetings.
Are there any fees or requirements?
This faith-rooted organizing cohort is FREE, but space is limited. However, we know that meaningful learning or transformation often happens in community when we are willing to engage in the work. Therefore, each participant will have the opportunity to be a part of CLUE campaigns to gain hands-on experience. In exchange for this training, we would appreciate participants offering around 15-20 hours/month (i.e. 3-5 hours/week) of in-person or online support for CLUE campaigns during the cohort.
