Building Power for Change: What are our goals?

Thank you for your interest in the Building Power for Change: Field Organizer Training Workshop for Hamilton County Leaders and Organizers. This session will be held Tuesday, September 12th from 6 - 8:30 PM at the UnifiEd office. (1609 McCallie Avenue)

This session is intended to be the first step in a series of growth opportunities UnifiEd offers for community members seeking to ensure that all of young people have the opportunity to succeed and flourish while in school and after they graduate.

Our goals for the training are to:

(2) Understand shared language for our work

(3) Learn about the history and politics of education policy

(4) Develop skills to grow capacity for critical empathy essential for sustained political engagement

(5) Shift power and decision-making from UnifiEd staff to community leaders

(6) Share stories and vision together about Hamilton County schools
