Lift As You Climb 2020 Keynote: Building a New City and Centering Community
From Gwen McNamara
Building a community that centers the most marginalized is important to all of us at the Pace Center and beyond. This talk features Pastor Tyler Sit of New City Church in Minneapolis, MN. He will share his community-centered approach to place-based justice work and best practices for responding to community needs in your own backyard. Join us to hear how this community works together to meet the dynamic needs of their neighborhood while centering the diversity of voices and experiences of its members.
This talk is the keynote address for Lift as You Climb, a virtual conference on volunteering. Lift as You Climb brings together students, community partners, and staff to create space for meaningful dialogue while preparing volunteers to do service well.
