The SPARK Organizing Intensive (SOI) engages an intergenerational cohort of reproductive justice and sexual health advocates through collaborative intensive political skill development for comprehensive and sound reproductive justice policies in the Southeast.
As a lead up to Legislate This! advocacy day, the SOI is geared towards supporting and empowering people of color, while centering the experiences of Black Women and queer & trans youth of color. The training will provide an opportunity for both new and experienced organizers and activists to dig deep on pressing issues that affect our communities across identities, gain concrete organizing and campaign building skills, and directly organize and support community events and projects throughout 2017.
As we prepare for a drastic shift in our political environment, it is increasingly important to focus on building our power and our voices as a community.
This year’s SOI advocacy training will take place on Sunday, February 19th, from 1-4PM, at the
Doors open/brunch served at 12:45PM.
