February 1, 2024 – 12 p.m. EST – Zoom Session
Come learn more about SEA Change, a 7-month cohort for clergy and lay leaders proven to develop the capacity of your community’s current and future leaders as we learn together how to make a big impact on racial equity issues within the congregation and beyond. Participants engage in a series of highly-interactive trainings on topics of belonging, racial equity, and community organizing, while working on teams to put this learning directly into practice.
Since 2020, 10 congregations and 150+ individuals have participated in SEA Change in the Washington, D.C., metro area, including major Reform, Conservative, independent, and Reconstructionist congregations. As a result of SEA Change, these synagogues have participated in meaningful community-based campaigns to increase affordable housing and win paid family medical leave alongside their neighbors, while also expanding membership, recruiting new board members, and introducing popular new adult education programming.
At this session, you’ll get a taste of what SEA Change is all about, hear from SEA Change trainers and alumni, and have a chance to get your questions answered.
