Those motivated by their faith to address issues in society like economic injustice, environmental concerns or human rights can learn how to get started and tackle challenges by attending a one-day training event Nov. 7 in Fargo.

“Putting Your Faith Into Action,” a crash course on faith-based organizing, will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Nov. 7 at Faith United Methodist Church, 906 19th Ave. N, Fargo.

The training is sponsored by Faith Forward Network North Dakota, a grassroots interfaith group focused on social justice policy changes to make communities safer and fairer.

“Putting Your Faith Into Action” is an ecumenical and interfaith training. Faith leaders as well as non-clergy individuals and students representing all faiths are welcome to attend, said Rev. Cody Schuler, co-founder of Faith Forward.

The trainer is Kristin Krumpf, who has spent the last 15 years working as an ecumenical and interfaith community organizer and trainer at the local, state, national and international levels. She has trained thousands of leaders and planned strategy for social change with organizations such as AARP, American Heart Association, Interfaith Worker Justice and the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights.
