OTOC member organizations are being asked to hold at least one large group meeting anytime from September 15 to November 6 with members of their congregation or organization to listen to stories and experiences of their members.

This process of listening to the ‘pressures on our families’ is the fundamental way that OTOC leaders identify issues of common concern which become the basis for organizing Action Teams. OTOC is asking each member institution to have at least two representatives at this training session to help you organize the listening campaign.
