Training: Faith-Rooted organizing
Noted Author Lisa Sharon Harper will return to Richmond to deliver an in-depth Faith-Rooted Organizing training at Richmond Hill. Faith-Rooted Community Organizing and Advocacy training draws from the deep wells of wisdom from multiple heroes of biblical justice and from the rich spiritual core of historic justice movements. Participants will gain the basic tools and insights needed to analyze their community, strategize, build collaborative networks, and take action, all in a way that draws from the roots of their faith. This workshop equips all people of faith whether clergy, students, teachers, seekers, young or old to marshal their unique gifts and bring them to bear on social justice issues and the common good.
Presented as part of TRHT, this training is a first step in bringing faith communities together from across Richmond to tell our region’s story in new ways, build authentic, justice-oriented relationships across social and economic divides, and to work jointly to end structural racism. We hope that through this training, you will gain new tools, motivation, and allies to continue and build on the work many you are already doing in your communities.
