Seeding Our Liberation
Preparing for SOL 2.0
OPAL launched the Seeding Our Liberation (SOL) Campaign, a 12-week, stipended EJ leadership development program and is currently planning its second cohort now!
SOL members will take part in twelve workshops aimed at building communications, organizing, and public speaking skills and will learn about EJ topics, just transition, grassroots feminisms, and more. Members will also participate in OPAL campaigns and several nonviolent direct actions in the region to spread awareness and help catalyze change.
This program will directly benefit the coalition and wider EJ community at large by cultivating leadership, fostering community, and developing connections with community groups across the region. Fellows will learn about coalition partners' work and could even become involved in coalition initiatives after completion of the program!
