Building the Movement for Mutual Aid

October 24, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Don’t miss this engaging workshop! An accessible & entertaining introductory presentation, “Protectors v. Profiteers: Communities in Resistance to Disaster Capitalism,” followed by group conversation about how to respond to local disasters in solidarity with frontline communities.

Free admission – all are welcome!

The Mutual Aid Disaster Relief (MADRelief) Training Team is visiting our community. Currently MADRelief is on a national capacity-building and educational tour. They will explain how natural storms turn into unnatural disasters through dangerous new forms of “disaster capitalism” and “extreme resource extraction,” and train diverse affinity groups on principles of grassroots direct action humanitarian aid and crisis response, covering a wide range of topics such as “Principles of ‘Solidarity, Not Charity,’” “Using Privilege to Break Down Barriers,” “Building Power in Collaboration,” and “Overcoming Trauma Together.”
