Workshops

Sharpen your community organizing skills.

"At Citizens Committee, we don’t just give out grants. We host free community workshops on great ways to mobilize your neighbors, raise funds (beyond our own grants), navigate city government, and more. We share stories, tools, and tips custom-tailored to meet the needs of grassroots groups—and listen to your experiences. Our workshops are designed with resident-led groups in mind; each session draws from the ideas and experiences that you bring. We’re happy to do workshops on an as requested basis, in your neighborhood, on your schedule, tailored to your project. Complete four workshops and receive a Neighborhood Leadership Institute certificate of achievement."

Registration, RSVP is required:

To register, please contact: Arif at aullah@citizensnyc.org or 212-822-9580

Events:

Sept. 20 (11AM - 3PM, Manhattan)Community Organizing - Bring neighbors together to work on issues that matter to you.

  • Our most popular workshop gives a comprehensive overview of how to bring about meaningful community change. You’ll learn how to address your neighborhood's most pressing needs—and target specific solutions. You'll gain tools you can use to craft a mission statement, strategize your action plan, recruit volunteers, and even build alliances.

Sept. 27 (11AM - 3PM, Manhattan): Group Structure - Build and maintain an effective neighborhood association or community group.

  • Learn how to work together and address issues as a group. A structure that works for a block association in Bedford-Stuyvesant might not work well for a youth organization in Highbridge. You'll learn about different ways to organize your group in a way that meets your needs and supports your work.

Oct. 18 (11AM - 3PM, Manhattan): Media Tools - Increase public support for your group by framing your message and alerting local media.

  • You read about a music camp in your local paper, or heard about a vertical garden on NY1. Whether it's through print, radio or TV, you can get the word out about your project—and inspire others to spring into action, too. This workshop will teach you how to write a compelling press release, host a press conference, and otherwise frame your message in a way that grabs the spotlight—and gets people involved.

Oct. 25 (11AM - 2PM, Manhattan): Navigating City Government - Learn how city government functions and how to have your community issues addressed.

  • De-mystify the inner workings of the City of New York—and get a tip or two on how to make the city's process more efficient for you. We'll share our frustrations and success stories—and listen to yours. Come away with clarity, confidence, and the experience of someone who’s been there before.

Nov. 15 (11AM - 3PM, Manhattan):  Grassroots Fundraising - Support your group's work with community fundraising efforts.

  • Learn how to raise money from your neighbors. We'll share specific messaging strategies and fundraising ideas to appeal to your local community. Whether it's garden party or a bake sale, we’ll help you find a strategy that works for you.

You’ll learn how to address your neighborhood's most pressing needs—and target specific solutions. You'll gain tools you can use to craft a mission statement, strategize your action plan, recruit volunteers, and even build alliances.

Sept. 27 (11AM - 3PM, Manhattan): Group Structure - Build and maintain an effective neighborhood association or community group.

  • Learn how to work together and address issues as a group. A structure that works for a block association in Bedford-Stuyvesant might not work well for a youth organization in Highbridge. You'll learn about different ways to organize your group in a way that meets your needs and supports your work.

Oct. 18 (11AM - 3PM, Manhattan): Media Tools - Increase public support for your group by framing your message and alerting local media.

  • You read about a music camp in your local paper, or heard about a vertical garden on NY1. Whether it's through print, radio or TV, you can get the word out about your project—and inspire others to spring into action, too. This workshop will teach you how to write a compelling press release, host a press conference, and otherwise frame your message in a way that grabs the spotlight—and gets people involved.

Oct. 25 (11AM - 2PM, Manhattan): Navigating City Government - Learn how city government functions and how to have your community issues addressed.

  • De-mystify the inner workings of the City of New York—and get a tip or two on how to make the city's process more efficient for you. We'll share our frustrations and success stories—and listen to yours. Come away with clarity, confidence, and the experience of someone who’s been there before.

Nov. 15 (11AM - 3PM, Manhattan):  Grassroots Fundraising - Support your group's work with community fundraising efforts.

  • Learn how to raise money from your neighbors. We'll share specific messaging strategies and fundraising ideas to appeal to your local community. Whether it's garden party or a bake sale, we’ll help you find a strategy that works for you.

Registration.

When: October 23-26

Overview

"We’ve entered a new era in the United States where healthcare reform is availing avenues of access for people who use drugs. It is a time when criminal justice, as a response to drug use, is being openly questioned, a time of changing drug trends as the nation involves itself with prescription drugs. We are seeing a focus on women, especially pregnant women. Latin American countries are openly questioning how much violence and corruption they can absorb to fuel the drug needs of the United States. Popular drug law reform involving marijuana could open up discussion for reform in other areas, or conversely, it could close down those opportunities. The United Nations and the Organization of American States are both gearing up to have significant conversations on drugs. Naloxone is becoming increasingly available and getting into the hands of the people who need it most. We might not have a vaccine but we do have effective HIV prevention and treatment, and new hepatitis drugs are being developed."

Harm Reduction

Harm reduction is a set of practical strategies that reduces negative consequences of drug use, incorporating a spectrum of strategies from safer use to managed use to abstinence. Harm reduction strategies meet drug users “where they’re at,” addressing conditions of use along with the use itself. Harm Reduction recognizes that communities who are living with HIV/AIDS, hepatitis, poverty, discrimination, and violence are uniquely impacted by drug-related harm and recognizes that it must work side by side with other social justice movements to eradicate the negative impacts of the war on drugs. The National Harm Reduction Conference hosts panel discussions, workshops, roundtables, and open space forums where the following and other topics will be discussed.

The Albert Einstein College of Medicine Division of Substance of Abuse invites you to the Bronx Premiere of “The Fix”!

THE FIX - THE HEALING IS MUTUAL

By Laura Naylor

Winner of the Jury Prize for Best Documentary at the 2014 SOHO International Film Festival, The Fix follows the story of a group of recovering injection drug users in the Bronx who join forces to fight the Hepatitis C epidemic in their community. Knitting together personal narratives with a profile of innovative programs at a methadone clinic, the film explores the concept of storytelling as an instrument of change and gives a powerful voice to a marginalized population. The Fix is ultimately a personal story of redemption and hope, putting a human face on addiction and disease with sensitivity and grace.

 

Event is free and open to the public.

Panel discussion and appetizer buffet will follow film.

Wednesday, July 9, 2014, 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM ET

  • Nationwide, 17% of Asian Americans (AA) and Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders (NHPI) are uninsured. Rates are higher for Koreans (35.5%), Hmong (26.7%), Tongans (26%), Marshallese (24%), and Bangladeshis (22.5%). The development of effective outreach and enrollment efforts to ensure AA and NHPI communities understand and benefit from the new health insurance coverage options through the Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires an understanding of the population. This webinar will share the findings of a recent needs assessment report on ACA-related outreach and enrollment efforts in AA and NHPI communities. The findings are based on feedback from 22 community-based organizations (CBOs) in 9 states.

This webinar is for community based organizations, government agencies, and private foundations; and is sponsored by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).

Learning objectives:

o    Understand AA and NHPI communities – who they are, and where they live;

o    Understand the mental health and substance abuse issues in AA and NHPI communities;

o    Understand the AA and NHPI experiences with ACA outreach & enrollment efforts; and

o    Understand their unmet needs for successful ACA outreach & enrollment efforts.

Webinar | Coverage of Hep C Testing Under ACA http://nychepbc.org/calendar/?mc_id=158 Tue, 24 Jun 2014 16:49:14 +0000 jleonatkins Webinar: Coverage of Hepatitis C Testing

Under the Affordable Care Act

Thursday, July 10th, 2014,

2-3 pm ET; 1-2 pm CT; 12-1 pm MT; 11 am-12 pm PT

Presenter:   Carl Schmid, Deputy Executive Director, The AIDS Institute

Click Here To Register

Testing for the Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) is key to finding the estimated 3.2 million people living with chronic HCV in the United States and linking them to care and treatment.  More than half of those living with HCV are unaware of their infection.

The United States Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommends one time testing of “baby boomers” - those born between 1945 and 1965 – and periodic screening for those who are at risk of HCV.

Due to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), payers such as Medicaid, Medicare and private insurers, will now be required or incentivized to cover the costs of HCV screening.

The webinar will explore the current USPSTF recommendation for HCV and how each payer currently can cover HCV screening, which in some instances, is dependent on the state.

Note:  This webinar will be recorded for future viewing.
