Our Power|Poder is a QTPOC leadership development cohort for queer and trans people of color. This is a year-long program with 4 weekend retreats where cohort members will be able to select and develop their own community leadership projects while acquiring the skills necessary to execute them successfully:
November 16-18, 2018: Damascus, OR
February 8-10, 2019: Damascus, OR
April 26-28, 2019: Damascus, OR
August 23-25, 2019: Damascus, OR
Our Power|Poder focuses on advocacy and facilitation skills for QTPOC who are invested in community organizing, canvassing, policy changes, and education. Our Power|Poder seeks to create a space where QTPOC leaders are seen, supported and given the opportunity to practice new skills to support their community.
We believe that leadership development is dependent on trusting relationships, where each cohort member graduates with not only new skills and expertise, but also a community of fellow QTPOC leaders to support them and cheer them on moving forward.
The deadline for applications is September 3rd, 2018. Applicants will be notified of their acceptance status by October 5th, 2018.
