North Coast People’s Alliance Holding ‘Run, Serve, Lead!’ Workshop in McKinleyville
This is a press release from North Coast People’s Alliance:
MCKINLEYVILLE, CA – The North Coast People’s Alliance (NCPA) will bring its popular workshop ‘Run, Serve, Lead! – Introduction to Civic Engagement’ to McKinleyville on Friday, Sept. 22, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Grace Good Shepherd Church, 1450 Hiller Road.
The first “Run, Serve, Lead” drew roughly 100 people in Arcata in June, and was praised as “Exceptionally well done! Most up-lifting event I have attended since the election.
The workshop provides fundamental information for anyone considering running for office, applying to serve on an appointed board or commission, volunteering for a local campaign, or simply becoming a more actively engaged citizen.
McKinleyville Community Services District Board Member George Wheeler, McKinleyville Municipal Advisory Committee Member Craig Tucker, Humboldt Area Foundation Leadership Program Manager Ron White, and Northern Humboldt Union High School Board member Dana Silvernale will participate in a panel discussion and audience Q&A session. Arcata City Council Member Sofia Pereira will speak about preparing to run for office, and NCPA volunteers will share important resources and information pertaining to civic engagement.
There is a suggested donation of $5 per person; however, no one will be turned away for lack of funds. Refreshments will be available for purchase.
The North Coast People’s Alliance evolved from Northern Humboldt for Bernie Sanders. After the primary, NCPA members decided to continue to work together to build an organization to empower ordinary people to become more engaged in political processes.
