Directors’ Forum: Let’s Build Strong, Healthy, Vibrant Communities Together!
August 31, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Let’s Build Strong, Healthy, Vibrant Communities Together! What role do sexual and domestic violence agencies have in building strong, healthy, vibrant communities now and into the future? How can we as advocates activate women’s civic engagement around issues that really matter to them; issues like good schools, access to health care, living wages, and equal opportunities? How can we connect those issues to the economic, racial, reproductive, and gender justice that will meet the needs of survivors, their children, and even future generations?
The Action Alliance is proud to partner with Galvanize USA, a national, non-partisan group as we explore these questions. Galvanize works at the intersections of data science, behavioral psychology, and neuroscience to build long-term progress toward these goals. Galvanize’s multi-pronged approach includes values-based, nonpartisan deep canvassing, which uses storytelling and authentic connection to change hearts and minds. Our partnership with Galvanize fortifies the work the Action Alliance has been doing with all of you to build thriving communities. Our Building Thriving Communities initiatives focused last year on the 2020 Census, voter registration, and voter education; this year we’re exploring how we can build ongoing civic engagement.
Join us Tuesday, August 31, 1-4pm, to learn why the Action Alliance is so excited about the potential for lasting, transformative change that this kind of work could bring, hear from Galvanize themselves about their science-based approaches, and learn about how your agency can get involved in creating a Virginia that works for everyone! P.S. Catch a sneak peek at Galvanize’s Model for Change, attached! Register in advance for this meeting, here. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
