THE PRO-LIFE MOVEMENT

Because the communities of color make up BIG Abortions largest target base and percentage wise their largest and most loyal voting block, every aspect of the Pro-Life movement faces cultural challenges. Thus the need for Cultural Proficiency Training is high and ever with us regardless of where you maybe serving in the Pro-Life movement. Top

WHAT IS CULTURE?

Culture is made up of our basic values and assumptions about life. It is the way we communicate, how we solve problems and what we consider logical. We might believe that these values and assumptions are shared by people from different parts of the world but in fact, they usually are not. Therefore, without examining culture, we don't even realize that we are all playing the same game (life) with a different set of rules. Top

WHAT IS CULTURAL COMPETENCE?

Cultural competence is a deep understanding of your own cultural identity, cultural values and how those values influence the way that you interact with people in the United States. Through cultural competence, you can also gain knowledge of American cultural values and communication styles and learn how to use that knowledge to be more effective in your professional and personal interactions in the United States.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

Our Cultural Proficiency Training is designed for Pro-Life organizations or teams. Because the workshop is highly interactive and focuses on group decision-making and consensus, the training experience will be enhanced by the attendance of as many staff or team members as possible. Top
