Training Leaders in Community Organizing
BRIDGE Maryland provides training for members of faith-based organizations, on the principle that the people experiencing injustice, given the right tools, are most effective in challenging it. Training includes identifying self-interest, relationship building, power analysis and strategic planning.
Some training is offered at every meeting of the General Assembly and of the Religious Leaders' Caucus. More intensive and extensive training is offered through a local 1-2 day training.
All organizational and individual members are eligible and partially subsidized for the longer trainings offered by our national organizing, Gamaliel Network.
Here are some Gamaliel Trainings coming up:
