Join Center for Constitutional Rights Advocacy Program Manger, Nahal Zamani, as she examines questions such as: Where do you begin? How do you identify and build relationships with community members? How do you effectively engage and communicate with community members? How do you ensure that engagement is inclusive, equitable and reaches marginalized voices? What does meaningful participation look like? How do you ensure accountability? What are the relevant ethical considerations?
By the end of this workshop, participants will be better able to: critically examine how community engagement can be a valuable approach to human rights and social justice work; identify and analyze various elements of community engagement using a rights-based approach; identify community members, assess needs, identify opportunities for collaboration, effectively communicate with key stakeholders, address conflicts, and develop implementation strategies; identify and discuss challenges (including ethical, logistical, organizational) that may be encountered through this work, and how they might be addressed; and apply best/promising practices to their work.
