Our People Gonna Rise
Our People Gonna Rise

You’re invited to attend this series of three anti-racism workshops. These 6-hr workshops will create a safe space for difficult conversations as we come together and commit to ending racism in our climate justice work. The format will be a mix of short presentations of how oppressions (specifically racism) work and how individual experiences can intersect along axes of different oppressions; small group storytelling (longer times with opportunities for deeper sharing and deep listening); large group sharing (shorter and mostly of highlights from small group discussions); and time for individual creative reflection.

8/15 update: the series is now FULL. Use this form to sign up for the waitlist.

SCHEDULE CHANGE as of 9/8! Due to travel schedules & the urgency around DACA, we’ve swapped these so that the Allies to Immigrants workshop is first (this Sunday), and the Black Liberation workshop is second (on October 14)! Please also be sure to arrive early if you’re driving; parking is a little far away. (Also note the carpool links below.)

September 10th – Allies to Immigrants. We will explore how our economy benefits from displacement and migration; the impact of displacement policies (including those in our past), war, colonization, and global poverty policies; and the current fronts of struggle for immigrants/migrants/refugees today. (Carpool link here.)

October 14th – Black Liberation. We will look at how racism shows up in our lives and community spaces, the history of anti-black racism and how our economy benefits from it, how our differences are used to drive wedges between us, and strategies for working in solidarity with black people and ending racism in our own community. (Carpool link here.)

November 12th – Solidarity with Natives. We will examine the idea of indigenous sovereignty and the history of the U.S. and tribal governments; concepts of settler colonialism and genocide (as distinct from racism); removal policies; and environmental justice as part of de-colonization and restoring sovereignty. (Carpool link here.)
