Grassroots Organizers Training for Power, MSPJC’s training program, is excited to announce a new partnership with the National Civil Rights Museum! The Museum is graciously offering use of their new education space, the Links Education Center, for many of our trainings. We are honored to be able to share this historical and sacred location.
We are also releasing a new logo. More than an image, its a reflection of the nature of G.O.T Power. A diverse group of people, from different backgrounds, perspectives and experiences, but with something in common, the passion to make from their community a better place to live for all!
We are very exciting to announce that we’ll launch this partnership on Thursday April, 17 with our Media 201 Workshop.
