350 OTOC leaders from 30 congregations and community organizations met on Monday, October 17 with Candidates for US Congress, Brad Ashford and Don Bacon, and candidates for OPPD Board Craig Moody and Tom Mulligan.
Watch the news clip and make note of peoples concerns. This is a prime example of why IPL’s role, of training leaders to build stronger communities, will be so important in 2017 and beyond.
The need is greater than ever for leaders who can work in their communities to spark conversations on difficult issues and to work to reach real solutions to problems.
You can do something to help fill that need — donate to the Institute for Public Leadership during its Holiday Campaign and your tax-deductible contribution will immediately get put to work. The IPL Board has set an ambitious yet reachable goal of $20,000 for the Holiday Campaign.Your donation, large or small, can help reach that goal by Dec. 10.
With your support, IPL can continue to empower diverse and emerging communities by developing leaders with skills training, research and organizing support. IPL, with its affiliate organization Omaha Together One Community, then helps those leaders act for justice and the common good.
With your support, IPL can continue efforts such as
Training refugees to be leaders in their communities on the rights and responsibilities of being tenants
Working with Omaha and neighborhood leaders on projects such as the Land Bank to make our city a better place to live
Organizing forums where citizens can get information on issues
Bringing together diverse communities with events like the Interfaith Solidarity Service and Refugee Culture Night
