Highlander is pleased to announce we are partnering with the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force (NGLTF) Academy for Leadership and Action, a high level leadership development and skills building program which is part of their annual Creating Change Conference, held in Denver, Jan 28-Feb 1, 2009.
Highlander is excited about bringing its training expertise to the Academy for Leadership and Action because, along with the more than 30 courses offered, it’s an important opportunity to further build the sustainability, leadership and skills of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) and allied activists and organizations.
Highlander Director Pam McMichael and Multilingual Capacity Building Coordinator Roberto Tijerina will facilitate three trainings at the Academy for Leadership and Action, including:
- From Stories to Action: What in the World is Popular Education
- ¿Qué Dijeron?/What Did They Say? Creating Multilingual Spaces
- Show What You Know: Cultural Work as an Organizing Tool
As the largest and most diverse strategic gathering of the LGBT movement in the country, Creating Change is an important opportunity to hone organizing skills as well as connect LGBT issues to the broader work for peace, and racial and economic justice. Attending is particularly imperative this year because of the unprecedented opportunity to address issues most important to justice and fairness for all.
