First Unitarian Church of Dallas
Want to find a way to build community and alliances across the borders you know? Join us on January 29 and 30 for the first of four 2016 weekends to build an inclusive network of activists and people who care in the Dallas area, gathering folks who care about issues that impact us all and connecting those who are already at work with those who want to be. We’ll address issues we all care about — white privilege, environmental issues, Black Lives Matter, voter rights, income inequality, racial justice, education reform, challenges for women and children — we’re all in this together.
Chris Crass, noted educator and trainer, consultant to faith-based groups and justice organizations, and writer will come to Dallas to kick off a year of training for activists. Tracy Brown, a Dallas leader, consultant to corporations and non-profits, author, trainer, creator of #whatisminetodo will lead workshop #2 in April. Speakers and content for the third and fourth workshops will be designed with the community.

Friday, Jan 29: 7 pm to 10 pm — keynote speaker, book signing, reception, Channing Hall, First Unitarian Church of Dallas, 4015 Normandy, Dallas TX. Friday is free and open to the public.
Saturday, Jan 30: 9 am to 4 pm — workshop, lunch with leading edge activists, building a network of first responders and committed speakers.
