The event creator says
Last fall, almost 200 organizers, neighbors, community members, people of faith, and justice workers gathered to "train our intuition" towards new practices of power and solidarity within a racial justice movement.

As the killings of black men, women, and transfolks continue, we are a long way from rest.

Please join us for an gathering, workshop, training, and movement-building convening on April 12, 2015 so that we may continue the work of struggle and resistance.

The gathering will once again ask for open hearts and curious minds, and will be facilitated Ricardo Levins Morales, Susan Raffo, Liz Loeb, and Arif Mamdani.

The afternoon will include lunch, snacks, coffee, tea, water,, comfortable space with mobility access and good acoustics. We are committed to access and affirmation in ways we know and ways we don't know, so please contact Liz Loeb, Elizabeth.Loeb@gmail.com with specific needs.

As with the previous Solidarity training, the afternoon will once again be free of charge, thanks to the investment and commitment of community donors. We will ask, however, that each participant contributes an amount that is meaningful to them to POC and Indigenous-led healing and justice work. A funding link will soon be available. Additionally, we are still in need of people to contribute to the costs of the training itself. Please go to http://www.gofundme.com/racial-justice.

Finally, space can only be guaranteed for folks who register ahead of time. The registration link is: http://www.eventbrite.com/e/solidarity-training-for-white-folks-doing-racial-justice-tickets-15672362458?aff=eac2

This training has been specifically designed for people who identify as white and who are actively involved in racial justice work or multi-racial organizing. The training will include reflection, skill building, relationship-building, story-telling, and concrete action steps.

***UPDATE*** Hello everyone! Wow wow wow. Susan , Arif , Ricardo, and myself are happily overwhelmed and deeply grateful for all of the energy and connection that has been happening here.
