This month: Collective Work & Coalition Building

Event Summary: Are you a community organizer or an activist looking to gain more organizing tools and skills? Now more than ever Ohio needs it’s leaders to work collectively and build coalitions. We will introduce social movement ecology, discuss coalition building, and name some best practices. Join Ohio Voice for our November lunch & learn to learn how to build coalitions and do collective work without compromising our individual organization’s purpose and mission. See you soon! 

Trainer Bio: Alwiyah Shariff is the Training & Fellowship Manager at Ohio Voice. In 2007, as a high-schooler, she started her organizing career on a campaign to raise the minimum wage and learned how to advocate for young people in the system. Since then, she has worked in multiple sectors of the social justice movement including protest organizing, lobbying, union organizing and field organizing – registering over 45,000 young people in Ohio to vote as Ohio Student Association’s Field Director. She’s also been a trainer for multiple training institutions including the Midwest Academy, Momentum and WildFire. She is coming to us from her role as the National Membership Coordinator with the Working Families Party and is eager to work (strictly) in Ohio at such a critical time in our country. She lives in Columbus, Ohio with her family and loves to travel back home to East Africa.
