Building a Resiliency Network Oct 27
October 27 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Over these two training sessions, Over Zero will present their most recent toolkit, “Building a Resiliency Network: a toolkit for building community resilience during a contentious election cycle,”. The toolkit can serve as a shared framework, with step by step guidance, for local Conveners of the Trust Network as they work to build resilience communities during the election cycle and long term. The toolkit also offers a shared framework across cities, serving as a tool for national collaboration while allowing for each response to be localized.
