WHAT WE KNOW:
WHAT WE NEED TO DO:
We have a strategy to turn the tide: build an inclusive social change movement that is warm, welcoming, and loving, and that puts forth a positive vision of the world we want
HOW WE CAN DO IT:
Whether your focus is on creating conditions in which liberals and progressives could win the 2020 elections or on longer-term goals of societal and environmental transformation, if you want real change, this training is for you!
In this six-session training by the Network of Spiritual Progressives and Tikkun magazine led by Cat Zavis, you will be in an environment in which your desire for a loving, caring, just, and sustainable world will be embraced and encouraged. You will be given the tools you need to bring that vision into the world through concrete proposals and programs that can create lasting systemic change.
In this training, you will gain the following skills:
How to listen to people who do not share a progressive worldview without criticism and blame
By the end of the training we hope that you will become active in one of the two following ways (we will discuss this in greater detail during the training):
The training is conducted on Zoom, a video conferencing platform that allows us to see one another and break into small groups. It is possible to participate via computer, phone, or other device from anywhere.
You will learn about the psychological and spiritual suffering that people experience living in our society and how to help people both understand and overcome it, strategies to create meaningful and lasting systemic change, and skills in empathic listening and speaking that will help you reshape the liberal and progressive world so that it can be more effective in reaching across the divide to speak to those who didn’t vote in 2016 or to that section of the Trump voters who are not racist, sexist, homophobic, Islamophobic, or anti-Semitic. Sessions will include readings, role-plays, listening to role-plays of Rabbi Lerner and Cat Zavis, group practice, and large and small group discussion. This training will only work if you commit time outside these sessions to do the homework that includes outreach exercises, readings, and watching videos. We will provide buddy groups for folks in the training so you have ongoing support and engagement with others between the weekly calls.
