  • Networking and resources
  • Visits to neighborhood organizations

Don’t wait too long! This workshop sells out. Sliding scale fee: $25, $50, $100. We rely on registration fees to cover workshop costs. We encourage organizations with means to contribute on the upper end of this scale. Group rates available. Contact us if you would like to attend but will need a reduced registration fee.

Lunch is available for purchase when you register.

The event will begin at Groundswell at 450 President Street #1A in Gowanus, Brooklyn, followed by breakout sessions hosted by other community organizations in the building and nearby. Workshop sites are accessible. Please email us to make a specific access request.
