Escalting Resistance: Mass Rebellion Training
March 8, 2020 @ 2:30 pm - 5:30 pmFree
Extinction Rebellion Houston is hosting a nonviolence workshop with longtime nonviolence trainer and activist Lisa Fithian.
Lisa will be offering a three hour training to hone our strategies and tactics to impact power holders and create social disruption at increasingly larger scales. This organizing requires attention to how we build collective power that heals and liberates us from our socialization in the dominant culture of superiority – white, male, rich and Christian.
In addition to this exploration of power and healing we will look at: power mapping of people, economic centers, and geographies to increase impact within strategic terrains, creating calendars of engagement, organizing our people, increasing our capacity to take risks, developing solidarity response networks and how artful “props” can bolster our uprisings..
We cannot just tear it all down without replacing systems of oppression with systems of liberation. This is our challenge: organizing courageous, joyful and bold rebellions rooted in solidarity, with a beautiful, loving insistence that another world is possible and we are creating her every day.
