Relationship Issues

Session(s):  January 2018, NYC
Sunday, January 28, 2018 - 1:00pm - 3:00pm


"The people united will never be defeated" is a mantra we hear shouted wherever people have banded together to fight for equality and justice. Building unity across backgrounds, opinions and cultures to overcome hate and systemic oppression is essential in achieving greater collective power.

While we can recognize this in theory, all too often collective organizing can lose focus on the greater fight, and succeed or fail based on relationships in the group. How can a movement or a project survive differences in opinion, background, culture, and privilege? How can we talk about these issues and build workable ways to deal with conflicts that will inevitably arise, and ensure that infighting won't break a movement and distract from the larger goal? How can working with relationship dynamics potentially play a role in forming the new community space proposed by Utopia School? Are there movements with successful models of building trust that might help us?

This workshop invites participants to address these questions together by talking through past experiences, group dynamics, and looking to movements that have bridged differences. Let's talk. And listen.
