Love the People: Building Power Through Sanctuary
Are you concerned about how to build strength and sanctuary within your movements?
One year into the Trump Presidency, how has the concept of sanctuary expanded and taken different meanings and urgency in different parts of the country?
Do you want to learn and explore more about creating people-led alternatives to state-led “protection”?
Love the People is a three-part webinar series that will bring together storytellers who will share their experiences with community-focused responses to interpersonal and systemic violence. We will cover interpersonal violence intervention in our homes and neighborhoods, defending our demonstrations and movement spaces, and community defense in our workplaces, in sanctuary and across our communities. We will explore how to expand the concept of sanctuary and new ways to imagine community defense.
