Leaven Community Listening Campaign Kick-Off
Sunday, Feb 9, Potluck 11:45 am
Listening Kick-Off 12 noon-1:30 pm
Our spiritual wisdoms and values are calling us to talk and listen with one another and our neighbors. We can long longer avoid or be indifferent to those around us who are not in our bubble of friends and family.
On Sunday, the 19th, we will experience moving out of isolation as we act together to connect our spiritually, values, public engagement and action through our stories. We will begin another round of:
- exploring our migration stories
- the pressures and threats related to our stability and
- how we can respond and build an intentional community that benefits the many and not the few
We have intentionally convened a very diverse core team of Leaven Community leaders who will lead us in the 2017 Listening Campaign (Leaven Community Core Leader Team (includes the Sanctuary Lead Team).

LEAVEN LEADERS AFFIRM STATEMENT OF SANCTUARY SUPPORT
The Leaven Community Board of Directors, recognizing that equity, diversity and inclusion are critical components of our work for justice and the common good, has committed to an Equity Engagement and Strategy Process in partnership with the Center for Diversity and the Environment. We will...
- build a diverse cohort representative of our communities to explore issues of equity in our organization and the world
- adopt a common understanding of the problem, and
- hone our strategy and capacity for achieving equitable outcomes, starting with diversity within our board, members and partners.
Through this process, we will move toward our vision of being a vibrant multicultural, intergenerational community with the power to address the pressures on our lives as we live into our common dreams of a more equitable Portland where everyone thrives.
