The 10th Council District in Collaboration with the Empowerment Congress, Hosts Community Empowerment Training Session

| lafocus | | 1 Comment


In celebration of the 30th Anniversary of the Empowerment Congress and in commemoration of Martin Luther King Jr. Weekend, the 10th Council District in collaboration with the Empowerment Congress will host a specialized training session for community leaders, neighborhood council representatives, residents and members of the religious community, in partnership with Harvard University Pedagogy & Curriculum Specialist, Sarah ElRaheb who will empower participants to craft  their “public narrative”.

Citing the power of stories in communicating values as lived experiences rather than abstract principles, Ms.ElRaheb will lead a discussion on ways to strengthen Angelenos’ capacity to lead through personalized storytelling.

ElRaheb is a Canadian-Egyptian educator and coach who specializes in teaching public narrative, organizing, and leadership and has coached, taught, and coordinated over 80 Public Narrative and Organizing workshops across the United States, Canada, and Morocco with an emphasis on inspiring change by evoking shared values that motivate others to action. 

Founded by Councilmember Ridley-Thomas in 1992 as means to affect political change in the face of police brutality and lack of economic opportunity in South Los Angeles, over the past 30 years, the Empowerment Congress continues to educate, engage, and empower by uniting residents, businesses, nonprofit organizations, neighborhood groups, religious institutions and community leaders around shared opportunities to improve their communities.

The three-hour virtual training session will allow 200 community members to acquire and refine their skills to further their advocacy efforts and enhance their leadership styles.
