Practicing Freedom in a Time of Crisis: Political Education, Movement Building and Accountability’ with Resist + Renew

February 28 @ 6:30 pm - 7:45 pm

As genocide and ethnic cleansing continue to unfold in Palestine, everywhere around us a narrative war is taking place, while a campaign to silence voices calling for a ceasefire has gone into overdrive. The need to speak up for freedom, justice and equality has never been more acute or challenging. Friendships and working relationships are rupturing as a deep-set breach in values and beliefs is revealed, resulting in painful feelings of alienation and even betrayal with those close to us. In such a defining moment, we are starkly reminded not only of the importance and necessity of mobilising, but of the centrality of political education in working towards change.
In our first virtual talk of 2024, we aim to explore the fraught process of political education in our wider and immediate surroundings since October, and in movement-building at large. How can we guide each other through the necessary pain that arises with a developing political consciousness, of moving people from one political point of view to another? And how do we navigate the emotional and radically intimate terrains of trying to collectively learn to build a world rooted in a long-term vision of liberation?
Resist + Renew is a facilitation collective developing and holding participatory workshops, courses and spaces for groups working towards social justice and collective liberation.
The talk will be facilitated by Kelsey (they/them) from Resist + Renew. The speakers will include Sami (she/her) from R+R, and Aimee Shalan (she/her), Director of Makan.
