Wisconsin Network for Peace and Justice and partner organizations will be kicking off the Racial Justice Tipping Point project with a gathering and training. Register here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1ieD1nvmpjPAdfm5k0roPAydRn0iUpNEFxLUtvMRo2qE/edit
This is a chance for organizations and individuals to come together to learn about one another’s work, get trained on how to bring more people into the struggle for racial justice, and get support for next steps you or your organization is taking to work for racial justice.
The stakes are high right now with some incredible work being done for racial justice sparking a new movement moment amidst high levels of overt and institutional racism and violence all around us. Now is the time for us to connect, learn from, and take action with one another.
There will be 3 main breakout sessions offered: organizational change for racial justice, direct action, and engagement for base building. Visit the website for more information: racialjusticewi.org
