Para más información, por favor comuníquese con Pablo Riek, nuestro organizador bilingüe: escriba a firstname.lastname@example.org o llame al (503) 926-4854.
June, 2015 -- MACG is proud to be sending three Latino leaders, and MACG organizer, Paul Riek, to the Spanish language track of the Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF) National Training in Los Angeles this week where they will deepen their community organizing knowledge and leadership skills. Meet them here!
June, 2015 -- At the May 18 Discernment Assembly, 45 leaders from over half of MACG's institutions took on the big task of distilling 3 months worth of listening (to over 600 people) to just a few issues that affected the widest base of people.
May 2015 -- MACG's mission is to organize a collective effort to bring positive change to our community. In addition, cultivating new and veteran leaders so that we have a powerful base to take on the next issue is also a top priority, and these leadership skills benefit the leaders themselves and their institutions. To keep this great work going, we need your support. Today, we present Stories of Leadership where you can see stories from three of our leaders from across the broad-base. We hope these will inspire you to participate in an exciting fundraising challenge.
May, 2015 -- The results are in! Over half of MACG's member institutions held 37 listening events and listened to over 600 people during the course of the MACG-wide 2015 listening campaign! The next task is to take what we heard and discern the issue areas that will engage the most new leaders and have the biggest positive impact on the community, which we will do at Monday's Discernment Assembly.
