Interested in Faith-Based Community Organizing?

The Christian Activities Council in Hartford is building a new faith-based community organization in Greater Hartford. Rev. Josh Pawelek has been participating in the clergy sponsoring committee for this organization, and ten members of UUS:E have taken an initial 12-hour community organizer training. These ten UUS:E members will serve on UUS:E’s ‘core team’ for this new faith-based community organization. Faith-based community organizing brings congregations together across a region to find common ground on the issues that matter most to them. It gives them the power to address the issues and make real change in their communities. 

Would you like to learn more about this greater Hartford initiative and what it means to be on a core team? If so, the Christian Activities Council is holding two two-hour informational sessions this summer: 

July 12th, 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM at Shiloh Baptist Church, 350 Albany Ave., Hartford. RSVP to cmackey@christianactivities.org.

July 23rd, 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM at the Christian Activities Council, 47 Vine St., Hartford. RSVP to cmackey@christianactivities.org.
