We are calling on our communities to join us for "Liberatory Lineages: Unpacking & Resisting Anti-Blackness," an online, four-part workshop series that deepens our individual capacity and collective joint struggle and solidarity to unpack, resist, and intervene in anti-Blackness.
Created and led by a group of intergenerational Black and Non-Black POC organizers, community leaders, scholars, artists, and landworkers, “Liberatory Lineages” offers participants access to:
Politically radical curriculum that builds collective clarity and understanding of anti-Blackness as a global colonial project and an inherent mechanism through which white supremacy operates in the U.S. nation state;
Grassroots teach-ins from community leaders who share lessons about collective power-building, organizing, and liberation movements in our histories. These lessons will include reflections on joint struggle and resistance movements at the height of anti-colonial, anti-imperial, internationalist organizing;
An intentional reflection space that supports and challenges individual participants and the collective to deepen our resourcefulness and networks of support;
An empowering space that will foster clarity and direction around our collaborative strategies to inform, practice, intervene, and engage in joint struggle to resist and heal from anti-Blackness in our life and communities.
Collaborative resource guides with further readings, actions, recommendations for grassroots orgs to build with, and more.
This workshop series is for everyone committed to disrupting anti-Blackness on interpersonal, communal, and systemic levels. We will be prioritizing the safety and participation of Black people, indigenous people, and people of color.
We believe that Black liberation is integral and deeply interconnected in all our relationships, movements, healing, and eco-systems.

Workshop Format Details
“Liberatory Lineages” is an online, four-part workshop series. All sessions are intentionally spaced out by two weeks to give participants processing time in between. Each session will take place over Zoom, is two hours long, and includes a teach-in portion and a “pod” portion where participants break out into smaller groups. We kindly ask you to ensure you can attend each workshop for the full two hours before you register.
This is not a drop-in series – each workshop builds off the last. If you cannot attend all four sessions, we ask that you leave the slot open for someone else who can!
