This one day workshop on “Trustbuilding and Community Change” is based on more than three decades of community-based work in Richmond, Virginia with Hope in the City. It provides specific tools to help leaders and emerging leaders from diverse backgrounds to address issues of critical importance to their communities and work creatively together to build shared visions for reconciliation and justice. The interactive workshop will explore four essential areas of learning for individuals seeking to building trust in diverse communities where there is a history of racial oppression, bias and exclusion. In this process, participants will examine their own experiences of trust and elements that either build or undermine trust.
