Sept. 29, 2017, at 2:30 in Newton 204, Betty Garman Robinson and Dominic
Moulden, will present “Building Leadership for Transformative Community

Organizers Betty Garman Robinson and Dominic Moulden will draw on their
extensive experiences in working for *real* and *transformative change* (not
just tinkering with the existing system) to talk about the differences in
activism and organizing, including hows and whys of identifying and
building leadership. Robinson began her activist work as a college student,
later joining SNCC (the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee),
<https://snccdigital.org/people/betty-garman-robinson/> the organization of
young people that spearheaded organizing in the Deep South during the Civil
Rights Movement. This experience helped shape her subsequent experiences as
she has remained active and committed to working for justice. Her current
work is with Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ), calling white people in
to work for racial justice. Moulden has extensive experience in community
organizing and affordable housing development
<http://nyf.org/balm-in-gilead/dominic-moulden/>. He has been the Resource
Organizer for *Organizing Neighborhood Equity – ONE DC*
<http://www.onedconline.org/> (and its predecessor Manna Community
Development Corporation) since 1997. Throughout his career, Moulden has led
programs designed to encourage democratic social and economic development
in the Shaw neighborhood of Northwest, DC. For more about Moulden’s work,
