Event Details

This workshop is a 6 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, systems, and organizing challenges.

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 combines her experience as an acupressurist and community organizer to draw connections between the impacts of trauma and our work. She focuses on sharing tools to address the effects of trauma on our bodies and communities with an emphasis on the mind-body connection. Molly approaches this work through the lens of transformative and healing justice.

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.

We are offering this workshop courtesy of funding through the Catalyst Initiative of the George Family Foundation.
Lunch will be provided at 1:30. If you have specific restrictions, please contact us and we will do our best to accomodate.
Registration is required, space is limited! Even though this workshop is being offered free of charge, please contact us at least 48 hours in advance if you are unable to attend so we can open up your spot to someone on the waitlist.*

*All are welcome. We will prioritize registrations from indigenous people, people of color, queer and trans folks.
