Time: 2:00pm-3:30pm (CST)
The Idaho Coalition Against Sexual & Domestic Violence has been on a transformational journey – beginning with an inward-facing individual and organizational transformation to an outward-facing transformation. Kelly Miller and Jennifer Martinez will share what inspired the transformation, our theory of change process, and the essential practices that build muscle for our ongoing transformation toward an emergent worldview. The Idaho Coalition will share ongoing challenges and successes in working toward a multi-cultural, liberating organization and our social change approach to center on historically marginalized communities.
By the end of this webinar, participants will:
- Have a better understanding of the challenges that organizations may experience when shifting from a mainstream towards an emergent worldview.
- Understand why centering on historically marginalized communities is crucial for our work.
- Understand how the implementation of specific practices allows for the continual internal and external transformation of the organization and allows for more authentic relationships to emerge.
Kelly Miller, Executive Director, Idaho Coalition Against Sexual and Domestic Violence
Kelly Miller is working toward beloved communities where everyone is valued, everyone is safe and everyone can thrive. Kelly is currently the Executive Director of the Idaho Coalition Against Sexual & Domestic Violence and an alumni cohort member of Move to End Violence, a 10-year nationally recognized initiative of the NoVo Foundation designed to strengthen the collective capacity to end violence against girls and women. After thirty years in anti-violence work as an attorney, prosecutor, and activist, she has been on a transformational journey that has brought clarity to her purpose of our collective liberation to the last girl and a deep understanding that liberation has to begin with ourselves. She deeply believes that in order to move towards a world that is interdependent, resilient and regenerative, we have to live into that vision ourselves. We cannot become what we cannot imagine.
