Since December 2011, members of Building Healthy Communities, Long Beach, Foundational Sub-Committee have met continuously to develop strategies to promote resident leadership across the Hub. The result is the Leaders in Organizing Program, an effort to:
Foster and strengthen the culture of change, self-determination, and celebration in resident leaders.
And, to build power in Central/West Long Beach by increasing community involvement and influencing politics and policies.
In short, this program is for experienced community leaders to provide you the space to dialogue with others, learn together and discuss ways to support each other's work. The 5 Saturday sessions will be led by a variety of strong community organizing groups: Housing Long Beach, East Yard Communities for Environmental Justice, Los Angeles Alliance for a New Economy and the Long Beach Time Exchange.
