#JusticeIsEssential Speaker Series
Join the Conversation!
At Resist, we know that frontline leaders and groups that work for justice and liberation have the heart, knowledge, and tools needed to reimagine and co-create a better world for us all. In the midst of pandemic and uprisings, how do we get closer to this new world, what changes need to take root, and what strategies must be employed?
Join this three-part conversation as movement leaders, creatives, and elders discuss what organizing for the new world looks like, the importance of healing justice and spiritual resistance, and the role creative resistance can play.
Organizing for the New World
11/17 6-7:15 pm EST
“I believe activism should be generative: it should be fun, creative and it should feed our souls…”
-Joshua Allen, Paper Magazine
Are you curious about how your peers in the movement have been responding to this moment? If you want to learn more about the creative interventions they’re using, the ways they’re reimagining our world anew, and have questions about what philanthropy’s role is, come join us.
Our first conversation, Organizing for the New World, between Joshua Allen (co-founder of the Black Excellence Collective) and Barbara Smith (founding member of the Combahee River Collective) is happening on 11/17 and will speak to what organizing amidst a pandemic, uprisings, and an election cycle looks like in this moment, the impact Black feminist theory and anti-capitalist frameworks have had on intergenerational and intersectional movements, and how world-making is not only possible but already in existence.
