NYS Poor People’s Campaign 101
Wednesday, July 22 6-8pm
Online Zoom WorkshopOn July 22, please join us for Poor People’s Campaign 101. We will discuss the history of the 1968 campaign, the relaunch in 2018 and how we got to where we are today. Most importantly, we will focus on the principles of the campaign and our goals, in particular why shifting the narrative by shifting the narrator is so central to what we do. We will also explore ways you can get involved. Whether you are new to the campaign or would just like a refresher, or perhaps you are wanting ideas on how you too can present the Poor People’s Campaign to your organization or community, we encourage you to register for this program and discussion. Spanish and ASL interpretation available.

Storytelling Training
Wednesday, August 5  5-7pm
Online Zoom Workshop“Movements begin with the telling of untold stories.” – Willie Baptist

Sharing our stories is a critical piece of building power and organizing for the systemic changes that are necessary in order to guarantee our rights. One part of our strategy in the Poor People’s Campaign is to Shift the Narrative by Shifting the Narrator – elevating the stories, experiences, and leadership of the people most directly impacted by the oppressions we face.

During the training, participants will:
-discuss their experiences accessing healthcare and housing;
-practice storytelling best practices; and
-learn how storytelling fits into our work to grow the NYS Poor People’s CampaignIf you have not yet completed the NYSPPC Healthcare and Housing Survey, do that here before the training. Click here to complete the survey. The registration link will be shared after you complete the survey.

The training lasts approximately 2 hours and will be conducted using Zoom video conference.
