Today, we are taking our first major step in pursuing those goals by launching a new website
, in which we hope to share more about our work than ever before. You'll see our new mission statement featured prominently when you visit the site; you'll also see much more information about why we believe so strongly in the work that we do and the ways in which it connects to movements for justice everywhere.
But the shift is more than just a change in branding or messaging. With the new site launch, we are also making public an initial version of our Resource Clearinghouse. Currently, it contains some of the essential documents and tools we share with those who attend our trainings, additional materials on key issues, and information about upcoming training seminars (hosted by ARC, Inc. and by other organizations). As the site grows, we'll add to the current collection of resources and create new materials, such as our upcoming webinar series on file organization and document review. This section of the site will be kept password-protected so that we can share highly detailed information and techniques. If you are interested in gaining access to the site, please complete this form
Outside of the website itself, there are two other items I am excited to share:
- Save the date for the 2019 Baltimore Mitigation Training Series, to be held at the University of Baltimore School of Law on May 17 - 19. We'll update you with agenda and registration information in the coming weeks.
- We are hiring for a Director of Investigation who can help lead our investigations and provide training and guidance to members of our team. Take a look at the description to see if this seems like a fit for you or someone you know.
Whether you've been with us from the beginning or are new to our community, I hope you'll explore the new site and get to know our work a little better. Please get in touch with us about what kinds of information you would find useful, ways you would like to get involved, or other topics.
This is an exciting year for us at ARC, Inc. Thanks for being a part of it.
Executive Director, Advancing Real Change, Inc.
