GARE-BBSP: Inside-Outside Organizing and Community Engagement

This webinar will focus on how to implement inclusive outreach and public engagement policies, apply an equity framework to outreach materials and strategies, and deepen understanding of culturally inclusive dynamics.

Presenter bios:

José A. Arreola is the Community Safety Administrator for the City of Salinas and the Director of the Community Alliance for Safety and Peace. He has been at the center of some transformative community-government racial healing work in the City of Salinas over the past several years; you can learn more about their journey through the documentation of their collectives in the document Building the We.

Ryan Curren works with the City of Portland and is doing pathbreaking community relationship work with the City’s transportation initiatives that embodies some of the questions BBSP participants have about inside-outside organizing. Ryan also comes to this work building off extensive experience in building new relationship between government and community from his years with the City of Seattle where he was one of the principal architects of the Community Cornerstones program, an innovative cooperative partnership between residents, the City of Seattle, and U.S. Housing and Urban Development.

The first two webinars of the series covered explicit and implicit racial bias, and GARE’s Racial Equity Toolkit.
