The Urban League of Portland is pleased to announce our Social Justice and Civic Leadership program for 2013 – 2014. We are currently accepting applications to our transformative training which helps emerging leaders become successful advocates for social and economic justice and public policy changes that affect our community. The program will provide participants an opportunity to work together throughout the year on Urban League issue campaigns. We will also cover how to impact public policy and involvement in public decision-making.
The SJCL program will begin with a retreat in November 2013 and the cohort of 20-25 will meet every other month through the November 2014 election to strengthen their skills, share their expertise, educate voters, plan campaigns and more. Participants will gain skills in community organizing, leadership development, legislative organizing, and social policy advocacy skills . The selected participants will identify critical community issues and develop effective strategies and organizing campaigns.
