A series of leadership development trainings and workshops throughout the year will provide participants with skills and knowledge to be more effective agents of change. Participants will explore the spiritual aspects of social change work, receive training in various community organizing and activist skills, and share their experiences with one another and with the community.
Other community events throughout the year will offer opportunities to learn in-depth about some of the most pressing political and social justice issues, including Immigrants Rights, Sanctuary, Human Rights in Israel, Racial Justice, and Environmental Justice. Many of these events will be coordinated and sponsored by BJ’s existing social action and social justice groups.
In addition, we are organizing several opportunities to hear from faith leaders who understand their activism as an expression of their religious leadership, and to be inspired by their work.
