Interfaith Movement for Human Integrity through its Justice Not Jails program will conduct a training session on community organizing in Watts on Tuesday, May 16, 2017 at 7:00 PM. The training session will be held at Macedonia Baptist Church located at 1751 East 114th Street, Los Angeles, CA 90059.
Following the “Acting in the Spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.” event earlier this month, the community training session is designed to equip faith leaders and members of local congregations to advocate and take action to benefit their communities. This will the first time Interfaith Movement for Human Integrity has taken its organizing strategies to Watts, one of the most neglected areas of Los Angeles. Rich with cultural traditions and active faith leaders, Watts is the perfectly situated to address critical social, economic, and racial issues today.
The training session will be guided by faith-focused narratives and strategies to inspire, encourage, engage, organize, and mobilize local congregations to act in the spirit of Dr. King.
