Feedback form is now closed.
Katrina. Superstorm Sandy. The financial meltdown of 2008. These are some of the acute crises that underline chronic disasters like climate change, colonialism, and capitalism. Ferguson. Baltimore. Standing Rock. These are some of the flashpoints that are the rational and necessary responses in a society that is founded on institutionalized racism and colonialism. Crises and disasters, flashpoints and uprisings, these help bring clarity and focus our attention to underlying and systemic problems. In this workshop we will explore how to continue to develop systemic responses, build leadership skills and practices that empower us to move from crises to resilience, and create the necessary infrastructure to carry over from past struggles and victories and liberate our communities.
