W.E.B. DuBois said "As goes the South, so goes the nation."
There is a rich and deep tradition of resistance movements and community organization for Justice in the South. As it has often been the frontlines of historic oppression, as well as a laboratory for the far right, southern organizers have had to invest in creative, slow, and deeply relational ways of building a more just world.
We will be joined by Brandon Mond, southern Jewish organizer and currently a statewide organizer for Carolina Jews for Justice, as we do a skill building session around 1:1s with a deeply southern & embodied twist. This is perfect for you if it's your first time doing a 1:1, or if you are a seasoned veteran of the practice looking to add a more relational and deep connection oriented paradigm to your toolbelt.
This training is intended for leaders already active with DJJ who are seeking to get more involved with our work.
The venue has 5 steps to gain entry and no wheelchair accessible restroom. The venue is also home to a beautiful pitbull, who likely be cordoned off but may still be a cause for allergen concern.
