Our upcoming actions, events and community organising training.
We're taking action for a better NDIS that works for everyone!
We need to act on our shared values of equal involvement and quality support for people with disability.
Come to share stories, build relationships and secure commitments from our federal election candidates for Rankin
We'll also be acting on local issues identified by our listening across Logan and building a relationship with our next federal MP.
Will you be there to stand up for your community?
After the success of our first Power Network night we will be coming together again: this time during the Federal Election!We are young people of community. First Nations peoples, people of colour and leaders of diverse ethnic groups, unionists, people of faith, environmentalists, LGBTQIA+ activists, suburban and regional workers, inner city professionals, migrants, refugees, local and international students.Queensland Community Alliance is bringing together young leaders across QLD to build the deep relationships needed to create a better Queensland: the power network.A team has been intentionally meeting and learning about community organising. And so for this second meeting we'll continue to build relationships and discussing what is important to us in the context of the Federal Election.This will lay the groundwork for our listening campaign later in the year.If we can build allies outside our normal spaces and act in solidarity with each other then we have power to fight economic and climate injustice. Meaningful and secure jobs. Better infrastructure and healthcare.If you're curious to meet people you wouldn't normally over food, listen and share stories about who we are and why we act in our communities, and get your brain ticking about doing things different in QLD then come along. All are welcome. Please invite your friends.Elise and Ahri**We're thinking young as a diverse group under 35ish but aren't being strict about it.
Foundations of Community Organising:
The training is based on the philosophy and practices developed by the Industrial Areas Foundation in over 65 years of successful organising experience.
This training will be held on two Saturdays, 25th May and 1st June 2019. 9am-4pm each day. It is necessary for all attendees to commit to attending both days.
Topics at the 2 Day Foundations training include:
- Community Organising: based on the history and tradition of our religious, union and community organisations
- Relational Organising: individual relational meetings, listening assemblies, research, negotiation and action
- Strengthening our Organisations: building a culture that is relational, action oriented and reflective/learning
- Using Relational Power in the public sphere to take collaborative action on common issues
There is no cost to attendees who are members of partner organisations in the Alliance, although we ask a $10 donation for lunch each day.
