As we're working to change the world, are we doing it in ways that align with the world we dream of? Even in grassroots progressive organizations, how the work is being done may clash with the visions we are working towards. While we're fighting oppression, we may find it in our organizations. In this session we will explore how power plays out in organizations (nonprofit & others), our struggles for integrity, and what role nonprofits have in radical social change. Using a talking circle we will share stories, strategies, and burning questions about aligning our day-to-day work with our values/visions of social justice. We will write, draw and document our questions and stories. This session will add to the "Walk The Talk: zine project, which is in its early stages.
