        Congregations can be a powerful force when mobilized for justice work. This training will teach, model, and practice 3 central tools for community organizing that can be used to build a more loving and powerful justice-centered community.

        In many congregations activists struggle to get to a place where the justice work is owned by the whole congregation, rather than a select few. Our trainer, Matt Meyer, offers specific tools of community organizing, translated for the context of a congregational setting. We’ll vision what it looks like when the worship, music, board of directors, RE program, and finance committee are brought into a shared vision and how the basic tools of community organizing can help get us there.

        Matt Meyer is a founding organizer for the Greater Boston Chamber of Cooperatives. He's also founder two housing cooperatives and the Boston Cooperative Investment Club and has lent a hand on environmental, labor, and legislative campaigns.
