Restoring Power: Trauma And Resilience For Organizers

The content on this page is provided by a Time Out partner.

This workshop is a 2.5 hour exploration of the dynamics of trauma and resilience; their expression in our bodies, their active presence in our communities and their relationship to organizing, alliance building and change. We will share tools for expanding our resilience and clarity in the face of oppressive patterns and systems. The presenters: Ricardo Levins Morales Ricardo has been active in grassroots social and labor struggles from an early age. As a movement artist he creates images to counter the paralysis that the trauma of oppression impose. He provides support to organizations, activists and leaders to help them seek greater effectiveness. Molly Glasgow Molly offers a look into how what we face as organizers affects our bodies and communities. She focuses on sharing tools to take an active and empowered role in our health and combines her experience as an acupressurist and community organizer to draw connections between the impacts of trauma and our work. Who is an organizer? We do not have a strict definition of "organizer." We generally consider it to be someone who brings people together to affect change through collective action. Sliding scale. Suggested donation $10-50. Please pay what you can so we are able to continue offering a sliding scale.
