Facilitators needed for New Orleans dialogue on race relations

Elli Nagai-Rothe shared this request on the NCDD Discussion list today:

I am doing some work with Search for Common Ground, a DC-based conflict resolution NGO, and their Congressional Conversations on Race (CCR) project. We work with Members of Congress to design and convene conversations with their constituents that constructively address race-related challenges in their districts. Key components of the CCRs include a review of race-related history in the district, an experiential process and a professionally facilitated conversation. More info here: http://congressionalconversations.com/

I’m writing because we are in the midst of organizing a New Orleans CCR with Congressman Richmond which will be held in early April. We are looking for skilled facilitators to help facilitate small group conversations on that will take place between elected officials and members of the New Orleans community (about 100 participants in total) about the current challenges and future vision for race relations in their community. Ideally we would like to find approximately 8-10 New Orleans area residents who can serve in this role. We have a small budget available to offer as a stipend for facilitators. If you are interested, or if you know folks with facilitation expertise in New Orleans, please get in touch with me (elli.nagai.rothe@gmail.com), or with the SFCG on Race Project Director, Jeanne Isler: jisler@sfcg.org. Please reference “New Orleans CCR facilitator” in your email subject line.
