Strategies for Community Organizing
Exploring Social Justice Issues and Community Organizing Strategies through the lens of Biblical Interpretation is a workshop to address the role of the church and to begin a discussion on how the Bible addresses the current concerns facing our community. After the protests… what is next? How can the church re-establish itself as a core, active and involved institution in what is happening outside the walls of the church building.
This 12-hour non-credit workshop will be held on Saturday, January 31, 2015 from 9am-4pm and February 7, 2015 from 9am-4pm at the South Suburban DePaul University campus. Contact Tecora Rogers Harper at Tecora@alumni.depaul.edu for more information.
The workshop is led by Tecora Rogers Harper, MA., CEA. Tecora received her Master of Arts degree in African American Religious History and Culture from DePaul University and is a doctoral student in DePaul University’s College of Education. In addition to conducting workshops at DePaul, Tecora recently conducted Master classes on the history of spirituals and gospel music at the St. Petersburg Conservatory of Music in Russia.
