3-month training starting 7/29/2020 thru 10/30/2020 for $1,375
The convergence of recent tragic events — a pandemic disproportionately killing black people, the failure of the state to protect Black people, and the preying on Black people by the police— is not new in our history. After World War II, city-dwelling African-Americans saw the contradictions in a society that put a man on the moon, while allowing rats to maul Black children in their cribs at night. The federal government underwrote the substandard housing that Black people were consigned to because of residential segregation. Everywhere Black people looked and look, the state is not only impervious to OUR suffering but an accessory to the crime.
The recent killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahumad Abery, Elijah McClain and countless others, have confirmed what most of us already know: if we and those standing with us do not promote, plan, strategize, organize and mobilize in our own defense, then no official entity ever will. Young Black people must endure the contusions caused by rubber bullets or the acrid burn of tear gas because the government has abandoned us. Black Lives Matter only because we will make it so. White people must be willing to use their privilege, resources, and their bodies in defense of Black lives in order for us to make it so.
The time is NOW for a new paradigm!
Urban Triage Inc. is launching our Co-Conspirator Training which is designed to bring about positive, permanent shifts in how we define and understand the depth and breadth of White Supremacist Patriarchal Capitalism. Shifts that will be the direct cause for a new kind of freedom and POWER—the freedom to acknowledge our history and the power to do something about it. Impacting the confidence with which you live your life as a social justice co-conspirator, your personal productivity for Black Lives, and the difference you make in the world.
Urban Triage, Inc. training is grounded in a model of transformative learning–a way of learning that gives people an awareness of the basic structures in which they know, think and act. From knowing and awareness comes a fundamental shift that will leave people permanently changed and in alignment with the movement for Black Lives.
