Description

::DECOLONIZING OUR RESILIENCY MOVEMENTS::

Are you part of an organization or group that is working towards resiliency in the face of ecological and climate disasters? Do you often find yourself wanting to make these spaces more inclusive and representative? Perhaps you desire to know more about how to decolonize your organization and work?

Come join for a half day of collaborative, interactive dive into the topic of decolonizing and inclusivity specifically for resiliency, permaculture, social justice and environmental justice groups and movements.

Leave with some concrete next steps for yourself, your group and/or organization.

We will practice the principles of the topic by striving for an inclusive space made up of a balanced representation of participants.

Folks from underrepresented demographics especially invited to attend.

Time: 10AM-3:00PM
Date: August 27, 2017
Location: PLACE (1121 64th Street, Oakland)

Organizers will prepare a lunch for participants at the workshop. Donations will be happily accepted to cover the costs of the lunch.

ABOUT GIFT ECOLOGY:

This workshop series will be sustained largely by your voluntary donations and practice of generous giving. Please donate generously, in proportion to your ability.

Tansparent Finances: the cost breakdown of this workshop is equal to about $25 per person. This per person estimate was created by adding up our total costs for the venue, the facilitator and organizers, and food. Let us (NorCal Resilience Network) know if you have any questions about this!

We have limited space at this venue so you must pre-register for this event.

Again, Folks from underrepresented demographics especially invited to attend.

ABOUT OUR WORKSHOP FACILITATOR:
Susan Juniper Park is an activist working at the cross-section of ecological, economic and social justice. She is also involved in urban farming, healing work, and permaculture. She is a co-founding member of the Economic Development Without Displacement Coalition (EDWD), which is examining issues of gentrification. For the past few years, a deep curiosity about shifting the economic system has taken her on a stumbling journey with stints at a graduate sustainable business school (BGI), running a food justice economic project (Phat Beets Produce), working at a worker-owned coop, fundraising for a grassroots non-profit (Ruckus Society), experimenting with barter/gift/alternative economy, and novice attempts at self-sufficiency. She dreams of a justice-based, non-extractive and bio-regional economy that honors our great Mother and all her creatures.

ABOUT THE ORGANIZERS:
The Northern California Resilience Network is an emerging hub that works with partnership groups to provide capacity building, communication tools, events and project support to grassroots organizations on the front lines building local community resilience. We are offering this workshop in collaboration with Beyond the Culture of Separation as part of a series of capacity building workshops.
