LEADING IN UNCERTAIN TIMES: A TRAINING FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE LEADERS (ENGLAND)
ABOUT THE EVENT
When: November 4 -7, 2019
Where: The Friars, Aylesford, Kent, England
In the face of Brexit, a spike in hate crimes, and the global rise of fascism, leaders in the social justice space need one another more than ever. Well organized, well funded, laser-focused efforts to further shift the balance of power away from the public toward corporate interests demand that social change-makers step out of their individual, campaign focused efforts, and become leaders of a broader movement. To lead and sustain such a movement, we need a deep commitment to and investment in relationships amongst leaders tackling the biggest challenges of our time: fascism, climate catastrophe, and wealth inequality, to name just a few.
