Breaking the Silence: Town Hall Development Workshop
Over the last several years, activists, community leaders, and other stakeholders around the country have rallied together to #BreakTheSilence, to #SayHerName, and to assert that #BlackGirlsMatter. Join us this summer as we aim to expand upon these movements to further advance an intersectional social justice agenda. This workshop will prepare and empower participants to organize and execute a town hall hearing on girls and women of color in their local communities. Participants will learn about capacity building, resource mapping and testimony development and will be armed with the tools and resources necessary to build a diverse coalition of stakeholders to challenge, disrupt, and ultimately dismantle the systems that oppress girls and women of color.
