CESJ Workshop: El Puente + Community Organizing
Monday, March 5, 2018 4:00-6:00pm
Wollman Hall, Room 500
65 W 11th Street
Join us for a special training with El Puente, a community human rights institution in Southside Williamsburg that promotes intergenerational leadership for peace and justice through the arts, education, scientific research, wellness, and environmental action.
Participants will explore El Puente's Transformative Community Building Framework and will walk away with a clear model & methodology and ideas for acting on their own vision based on the needs and desires of their organization and/or community. Attendees will learn about this methodology through some of El Puente's core issues: intergenerational relationship building, environmental justice and sustainability, and gentrification in New York City.
There will also be the opportunity to see El Puente's methods in action via community sites, and a special chance to connect and speak with El Puente's co-founder, Frances Lucerna.
This workshop is part of Lang Civic Engagement & Social Justice's Skill-building for Social Justice series, which partners with social justice organizations and activists across New York City to introduce New School community members to frameworks, methodologies, and practices they can implement in their own lives.
