-Radical Healthcare For Communities: How can people from marginalized communities, genders, & sexualities take control over our own health? How is climate change connected to mental health? What herbs are good for a cold? Come discuss these questions & more, as we envisioncommunity-based ways of taking care of ourselves & each other.
-From Activism To Organizing: How do we move past campaigns & events, & start building relationships & movements? This workshop is part strategy session, part discussion, & part skills-sharing. It can be specially tailored to help every group be as effective as possible in their work for meaningful change.
-Connecting The Dots Of Climate Justice: This interactive workshop focuses on the root causes of climate change & identifying the connections to social justice issues around race, class, & gender. With this knowledge we will brainstorm community-based solutions to the climate crisis & the injustices that face our planet & our neighborhoods.
-Consent, Support, & Community: Responses To Gender Violence: Sexual assault & other forms of gendered violence are far too common both on college campuses & within the activist community. This workshop covers both our personal responsibility in practicing consent & communication, & supports communities in building networks to address the culture of patriarchy, heterosexism, & domination that causes sexual violence.
-Event Organizing 101: Getting people to come to things is hard! Getting people to follow up & stay in touch after a great event can be even harder. This training gets into the nuts & bolts of organizing a great political event, whether it’s a benefit show, a meeting, a protest, or a conference. We will cover outreach, media, fundraising, facilitation, networking/partnering with other groups, & more.
-Riot-Folk! -Music, Collectives, & The Movement: What roles can music & art play in revolutionary movements? Learn about the Riot-Folk! Collective, how we are building alternatives to the profit-driven record industry, & using our music as a tool for radical social change.
