"Strategies for Change" is a booklet produced by the Coalition Against Violence, creating long-term solutions to deep-rooted problems. In this workshop participants will develop a reporting system that will highlight organizations that have adopted the “Strategies for Change” documents, and incorporated its suggestions into their mission and have ultimately implemented a specific program, project or initiative which will be added to the Coalition Against Violence Implementation Report for public distribution. Participants will also create a template/document which would be the foundation any organization entity or individual can utilize to begin to implement the strategies listed in the “Strategies for Change” document.
This workshop is hosted by Coalition Against Violence members Valerie Dixon (Executive Director of The P.A.C.T. Initiative), Toni Lois McClendon (Communities in Action for Peace), and Tim Stevens Black Political Empowerment Project.
