Hi Jill, thanks! We are excited to be shifting our approach in this direction and learning a lot along the way. We envision that the Action Cohorts will be flexible and adaptable depending upon who is participating and what interests they have, but in general we anticipate:
o Knowledge gained around trauma, social justice, and systems change
o Leadership skills gained including ability to articulate individual and community strengths and desires, increased confidence levels, and ability to build collaboration
o Connections gained to network of peers and to people in positions of power
This is a work in progress and will likely shift as we are able to begin implementing the Action Cohorts. Thanks for your well wishes! Same to you!

Thanks! Will do.

Hi Jill, this sounds like a great project! We are also similarly trying to invest in community leadership and building capacity of Latino immigrants here in the Twin Cities. I really like your idea for creating a platform for cross-village engagement and resource sharing among neighboring communities and local government. I think that makes a lot of sense and give folks another way to connect. Best of luck!
