We are living in a time of compounding crises, and we need to organize a response that has the power to match the escalation of the violence and destruction we are facing. But social change does not happen overnight, and it does not happen spontaneously. Throughout history, transformative change has happened through deep study, training and preparation.
Join us for this informative session as we explore frameworks on building a movement that has the power to stop injustice while healing relationships and bringing us one step closer to Beloved Community.
