After the March RVA: Activism Convening

 

What is it? Timed approximately one year after the Trump inauguration, the “After the March RVA” Activism Convening will bring together people from a variety of movements and perspectives working for equity, justice and social change. Anyone working actively for positive change, or interested in becoming more active, is invited. The convening will feature workshops, community conversations, and movement building/networking time. The registration below holds more information about the workshops and conversations. After the March RVA is sponsored by the Richmond Peace Education Center. The Peace Center’s intention is to deepen skills and build connections, to support struggles for positive change in these urgent times.

When is it? The convening is being held on Saturday, February 24th, 2018 at Diversity Richmond (1407 Sherwood Ave) from 12pm to 5:30pm. It is free and open to the public. However, we are asking you to please register below.

Who is it for? Everyone! Anyone who is (or has) been doing work to better the community and those who are looking to get involved in creating change have a place here.

What will I get out of this? We hope that you leave After the March with a new or deepened network of folks to work in movement with and with new or deepened “real life” skills. In addition, some of the workshops at After the March will continue to be offered by the Peace Center throughout 2018. The intention behind After the March is to be engaged in the long-term, so this is not a one & done convening. Lunch refreshments will also be provided!

Will childcare be provided? Yes! Please indicate on the registration if you would possibly need childcare.

Will transportation be provided? We have set up a facebook group for rideshare coordination. If you do not have facebook, please email jelani@rpec.org to get help connecting with transportation.

Have other questions? Email our advocacy coordinator, Jelani at jelani@rpec.org
