Thu Jan 31 14:40:53 CST 2013

From: Ben Palmquist <BPalmquist at urbanjustice.org>


The Community Development Project at the Urban Justice Center, the 
Center for Urban Pedagogy, and the Hester Street Collaborative are 
pleased to announce an upcoming conference and exhibit: Partnering for 
Impact: Innovative Collaborations for Effective Organizing. Join us in 
New York City in June for a day-long conference to explore how 
grassroots community organizations and resource organizations can 
partner to organize for justice and social change. The conference will 
include panel discussions, interactive case studies and hands-on 
workshops to build skills and explore innovative examples of 
participatory research, planning and design. More information, including 
date and location, will be coming soon!

Partnering for Impact will conclude with an exhibition of examples of 
innovative, collaborative projects. We are issuing a request for 
proposals for projects to be featured in this exhibition. Those that are 
selected will be able to share work with other resource allies, 
potential project partners, and funders. The exhibit will be open to 
conference attendees and participants, invited foundations, and members 
of the press, and the projects will be displayed in posters and a 
booklet documenting the event. Proposals are due on Monday, February 25, 
at 10:00 AM Eastern Standard Time.
