Virtual/Online – November 20, 2019, 9:00-10 a.m. PST / 12:00-:100 p.m. EST
Coalition building involves bringing together organizations and individuals with a shared interest who agree to work together toward a common goal. To effectively build a coalition, one must determine who to bring to the table and how to effectively represent the population(s) that the coalition aims to serve.
During this webinar, Berneta Haynes, senior director of policy and access at Georgia Watch, and Mona Muro, economic justice policy coordinator at the Texas Council on Family Violence, will share what they have learned about building culturally competent coalitions through their work. They also both worked on the National Identity Theft Victims Assistance Network (NITVAN) project.
Part I of this webinar will focus on membership and outreach. This session will answer the question of who you need to invite to ensure that your services are reaching minority communities. Part II will focus on coalition membership engagement and growth.
