Event description

Description

*Note: This smaller invite-only gathering is taking place ahead of the Revolutionary Love Conference, which starts at 1PM in the same location.

The leading social movements of the 21st century have birthed some of the most powerful and innovative organizing in recent history. They have also brought calls for healing and community-oriented care that can support people in their pursuit of collective dignity and liberation. One response has been the rapid growth of an emergent landscape - often described as "healing justice" or "transformational activism" - that is joining a long tradition of faith-rooted and faith-inspired organizing and activism rooted in practices of community resilience.

How do these old and new forms intersect? And how do we sustain and support the integrity of these overlapping fields in a time when "spirituality" is a multi-million dollar industry? The Nathan Cummings Foundation and Faith Matters Network have partnered to interview and map practitioners, old and emerging, to learn how funders and social movement leaders can be both resource and connect to practitioners and programs leading the way.


Join us on April 6th for this invite-only gathering, along with special guests include:

- Caitlin Breedlove, Vice President of Movement Auburn and Host, Fortification Podcast

- Francisca Porchas Coronado, Nathan Cummings Foundation Fellow and Longtime Organizing Director, Puente Human Rights Movement

- Micky ScottBey Jones, Director of Healing Justice Initiatives at Faith Matters Network

Learn what we're learning, connect with other leading thinkers and practitioners in the field, and dream together about how we might grow this burgeoning movement and help generate the social transformation needed right now.
