Training will be held via Zoom Virtual Meeting

CURA's Neighborhood Organizing and Leadership program is looking for People of Color and Indigenous to participate in a free training to support and assist them on their journey toward leadership. We are looking for People of Color and Indigenous that want to create change and fight injustice in their community through neighborhood board membership.

The Board Representation Leadership Training for People of Color and Indigenous will be Thursday, November 19, 2020, 5:30pm - 8:30pm via Zoom virtual meeting.

We believe neighborhood residents are the most powerful force against injustice in their community. Our Board Representation Leadership Training for People of Color and Indigenous values recruiting and supporting people of color to join their local neighborhood board to create change in their community and to transform the injustice of not having diverse voices and leadership in neighborhood groups. Our program creates learning sessions and a support networks for people of color join their local neighborhood board and use their power to make their vision for their community a reality through organizing. 

Who is this for?

The training is open to People of Color and Indigenous who want to join their neighborhood board and create local change so they are prepared to run at their neighborhood association or district council annual meeting elections, or want to inquire about board vacancies in their community.
