We’re looking for young adults aged 18-30, who are passionate about campaigning, to come and join us for a free Campaigning Masterclass at the Gateway Centre, Liverpool, on Saturday 13th October, 10.30am – 4.30pm.
CAFOD’s campaigning tackles the causes of poverty and hunger, not just the symptoms. Speaking out for justice goes hand in hand with our work overseas to help vulnerable families and communities to flourish.
It enables us to help thousands more communities than we could through fundraising alone, by advocating for changes in policy and practice to reduce poverty overseas. It includes political campaigning, but it is not party political.
Our campaigning reinforces CAFOD’s relationships with politicians, and enables our research and recommendations to reach the people who have the power to put them into practice. We make a difference when we join our voices with others who feel the same, as part of coalitions including all faiths and none.
The masterclass is a fantastic opportunity to develop your campaigning skills alongside other like-minded individuals and to learn more about CAFOD’s work!
Harnessing the expertise and specialisms within the organisation, the masterclass will be led by a members of our campaigns team and North West regional team.
After a day of building your skills, you’ll be supported to put what you’ve learned into action, to show solidarity and support for the world’s poorest people.
The masterclass will comprise of interactive and informative sessions on the following topics:
- How to campaign effectively
- How to engage with your MP
- How you can get involved with your local CAFOD team.
All crucial skills to have to be a key campaigner in the future!
This is a one day course which is completely free of charge, and lunch will be provided!
