Together for a Just World Training
September 14 @ 12:00 pm - September 16 @ 5:00 pm
In this work to end sexual and domestic violence, we have an opportunity to plant the seeds of a just world every time we bring people together. “Together for a Just World: Planting the Seeds for Thriving Communities” is a three-day training event that offer you and your attending partner an opportunity to build skills for weaving values-based social justice into your daily prevention, advocacy, and community change work. You will have opportunities to practice, reflect, play, and strategize. Upon returning to your respective communities, you both can apply these skills and further hone your ability and capacity to weave your values into a variety of spaces – from support groups and staff meetings, to community response teams and prevention education.
This experience is designed for sexual and domestic violence advocates and preventionists who have completed basic-level training and have been engaged in movement work for at least 2-3 years. There is no fee to attend. Breakfast and lunch will be provided each day. Participants are responsible for their own travel, dinner, and lodging arrangements and expenses. The Together for a Just World training is being offered 4 times over the next 10 months with sessions in Richmond, Northern Virginia, Charlottesville, and Christiansburg. Please apply for the training date that will be held nearest to you. Applicants must apply with a partner and submit a joint application. Each training will be capped at 20 participants (10 pairs).
Our first training will be held here in Richmond at the Action Alliance office. The times and dates are:
September 14- 12:00 – 5:00
September 15 – 9:00 – 5:00
