Mutual Aid Disaster Relief Workshop Pt. 1

We're excited to host the Mutual Aid Disaster Relief Training Team for a two-part workshop to train our community on principles of grassroots direct action humanitarian aid and crisis response. Join us!

The reality of climate chaos, coupled with rapidly escalating inequality and the civil political unrest that follows, is only worsened by a failing model of crisis management and aid programs centered around political opportunism and disaster capitalism. The time is right for developing a trained and empowered network of organizers who can help communities rebuild with a vision centered on local community control and sustainability.

Part 1 on Friday night at 7PM is an accessible and entertaining introductory presentation, “Protectors v. Profiteers: Communities in Resistance to Disaster Capitalism.” Part 2 on Saturday at 1PM is a deeper, participatory workshop for individuals who are ready to get involved, “Giving Our Best, Ready For The Worst: Community Organizing as Disaster Preparedness.”

Free admission — all are welcome! Child watch will be provided.
