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, cutting an issue, power analysis and strategic planning.
Our next big local training is Sacred Conversation/Listening Campaigns, Jan. 28th, 9 AM to 2 PM, at Perkins Square Baptist Church, 2500 Edmondson Ave., 21223. Our member congregations will send leaders to learn how to conduct one-on-one sacred conversations to deepen relationships, renew leadership, and clarify congregational priorities. Preparatory prayers will be posted daily on our Facebook page, for clergy and their congregation members! Click below:
Training is offered at every meeting of the General Assembly, the Religious Leaders' Caucus and the Ntosake Women's Pride. More intensive and extensive training is offered through local 1-2 day trainings, held at least twice a year.
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:
