Event description

Description

The Aliance to Halt Fermi 3 is pleased to invite you, and fellow activists to our Summer Garden Party with a Purpose.

This party will be the first in a series of "friend-raisers” designed to allow activists from the social justice, environmental, animal advocacy, and public health fields to develop social connections. At our recent board retreat, members of the ATHF3 lamented the level of “silo-ing” that exists within the various social, economic, and environmental justice movements. We observed that in the process of working deeply on a specific issue, organizations often do not have the time, resources, or social connections to reach out to other likeminded agencies. While the overall goals of a cleaner, healthier, more just society is held by many of these organizations, these organizations often fail to work in effective collaboration to achieve this vision. Our parties are intended to be a first step in changing this dynamic.

Given the current Presidential administration, social, economic, and environmental justice work has been incredibly difficult for the past few years. The daily news is filled with disappointing, disheartening, and dangerous executive orders, which will negatively affect public health, economic equality, racial relations, and gender parity. Nevertheless, despite the continuous stream of bad news, a new and vibrant generation of activists is rising to resist. For this reason, the ATHF3 believes now is a critical time to help foster meaningful connections and dialogue among various justice activists. We believe that our work could help individual organizations become more effective by sharing information, resources, and ideas of best practices among themselves. Further, given the grim times in which we are working, one should not underestimate the power of social connection and real human to human support.

Please, come be a part of the fun. Enjoy food, music, and drinks with your fellow activists; while we vision a brighter, better future.
