Consensus Organizing Training

Last month EmpowerMEnt had the opportunity to learn about Consensus Organizing when trainers from the Consensus Organizing Center at San Diego State University came to Atlanta. (Thank you Jennifer & Jen!) The method is currently being used for their Foster Youth Initiative that over 180 of our brothers and sisters in California have participated in, and 80% have gone on the college. The Consensus Organizing Model was created by Mike Eichler and it empowers communities through building partnerships with likely and unlikely partners.

Here's EmpowerMEnt's JUSTGeorgia team hard at work! You can like the Consensus Organizing Center on Facebook or read some of their publications here.
