Listening Season Approaching: Training 4/18
What is important to your family and community right now? What pressures are affecting your life and the lives of people around you?
The Spokane Alliance is at the point in our organizing cycle where it is time to listen. We want to hear what is important to our members so we can decide what is most urgent to act on together.
We will be kicking off our listening season with a training on 4/18, 5:30 – 7:30 PM, at Liberty Park United Methodist Church.
Listening seasons are an opportunity to discover the challenges and pressures facing members of your organization, as well as hearing the hopes and dreams they have for their families and the community.
We’ll discover people’s passions and energy to act, surfacing new leaders and helping engage them in advancing the mission of your organization.
The listening will also inform Spokane Alliance’s issue priorities for the year ahead and the larger work of building a better Spokane for all.
Please join us on 4/18 so you can learn the skill and approach to this process of energizing new leaders in your institutions and listening to what your community really wants!

Mark your Calendar: Discernment / Issue Prioritization Assembly and Annual Meeting
The listening season will culminate with a Discernment / Issue Prioritization Assembly (as well as our Annual Meeting) on June 12.
We will look at everything that surfaced during the listening process, prioritize the problems we want to act on together, and launch Research-Action Teams to begin the work of developing concrete campaign plans.
