Social Justice Leadership Institute
Looking to make a meaningful impact in your community?
Want to improve your understanding of the social injustices around you every day?
Interested in developing ties with the diverse community of established and emerging social justice leaders in Minnesota?
Join us for the Social Justice Leadership institute!
The Social Justice Leadership Institute is a participatory model of fundraising for social change and building community. We’re looking for a group of emerging Twin Cities leaders who are interested in investing themselves in the community to better understand local injustices and bring about transformative change. Participants will be part of a group of approximately 25 people coming from diverse backgrounds to learn, reflect, and act together. Participants will develop and improve their skills as donor organizers and grassroots fundraisers, and work together to strategically support underfunded social justice organizing in Minnesota.
The institute is a four-month discovery process during which participants will work with each other to both understand and address social justice. With a cohort of 25 people, you will 1) learn about social justice, 2) engage in a group fundraising project and 3) give the funds you raise to local social justice causes. At the end of four months you will leave with your own thoughtfully crafted framework for supporting and actively engaging with the social justice movement in Minnesota!
Examples of activities:
Participants are asked to commit to a total of 5 meetings--including one overnight retreat in September followed by monthly meetings (including dinner) from September - December, 2012.
Social injustice affects every one, and, for almost 30 years, the Headwaters Foundation for Justice has been funding the people who work to advance justice and equity in your community. This is your chance to join a legacy of leaders, paving the way for social justice.For more information contact David Nicholson at firstname.lastname@example.org
