Nearly 40 OTOC leaders participated in a training session on Monday, September 14 to learn how to organize an OTOC “Listening Campaign” at their institution. OTOC leaders Carol Beaty and Kevin Graham organized and led the session that was attended by leaders from 16 congregations and community organizations that have committed to move to hold a “listening session” sometime before November 6
OTOC member organizations are being asked to hold at least one large group meeting anytime from September 15 to November 6 with members of their congregation or organization to listen to stories and experiences of their members.
This process of listening to the ‘pressures on our families’ is the fundamental way that OTOC leaders identify issues of common concern which become the basis for organizing Action Teams. OTOC is asking each member institution to have at least two representatives at this training session to help you organize the listening campaign.
