Sunrise Project takes an equity approach to designing projects and also informing local policy. Rather than deciding as staff what we think is best for the community, we reach out and listen to people of all backgrounds and ages and work with the community to design solutions that are truly meaningful and created by those most impacted.
Are you interested in being more involved in our community? Do you have issues you care about, but aren’t sure how to make a difference?
Sunrise Project is piloting a new leadership and community engagement program called Activate Your Voice! This 3-course program will focus on building leadership skills (using Kansas Leadership Center principles), discovering and exploring your passions, and learning about the many ways to be involved in the Lawrence and Douglas County community. Two 3-course sessions will be offered: Saturdays, June 8, 15 and 22 (10am-1pm) OR Mondays, July 15, 22 and 29 (6-9pm).
If you are interested in participating, please fill out THIS FORM. A limited number of individuals will be accepted into the program. Submitting the form does not guarantee participation. Women, POC and minorities are encouraged to apply. Individuals 16 years and up are welcome.
More details to come, but feel free to contact Emily if you have questions: email@example.com.
A huge thanks to the Kansas Health Foundation for funding this new and exciting program!
