#WeRise: A day for activism, inspiration, learning and movement building
Sat January 21, 2017 @ 2:00 pm EST
Following the Women’s March * Anniversary of Citizens United * Weekend after MLK Day
On the day after inauguration, we are providing a safe, warm space for folks coming to the Women’s March on Washington — and other progressive events taking place inauguration weekend — to gain a deeper understanding of the critical challenges facing our nation, find ways to plug into grassroots campaigns that tackle those challenges, connect with people from a vast array of movements and acquire skills to become more effective organizers at home.
The program will consist of an array of panels and workshops about critical grassroots campaigns for the coming year — from campaigns rooted in protecting the rights of women, immigrants, Muslims and people of color to campaigns geared towards demanding democracy, economic justice and a healthy environment. Don’t miss the Solidarity Sing-in in the evening!
