Community organizer Wendy Krom, clergy and lay leaders in the Berkshires have been working for more than two years to create this faith and values-based, multi-issue organization of religious congregations across Berkshire County that will build community, develop leadership, and take action on issues of concern such as hunger/food insecurity and transportation. They invite you to work with them through citizen action organizing and democratic economic development strategies, to improve the quality of life for all people in the Berkshires.

The Berkshire Organizing Project is an interfaith group of clergy, their congregations and their regional affiliates who, together, grounded in faith seek to make justice real in our community. They have been called to action by the stories from individuals in our own towns, our places of work and worship, our families. These stories have given shape to concerns that run deep in the fabric of our Berkshire community.

This Founding Convention will take place on Sunday, January 25, 2015, 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm, at St. Mark’s Catholic School on Columbus Street Extension in Pittsfield.
