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.
 
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. 

The conference is free, but space is limited. Register today at: http://partneringforimpact.eventbrite.com

If you have any questions, contact Ben Palmquist at bpalmquist@urbanjustice.org.
