Training For A Just World

December 6, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - December 8, 2021 @ 5:00 pm

Picture is of a wavy line with the black Action Alliance logo in the lower right corner with wording regarding the training.

In 2019 the Virginia Sexual and Domestic Violence Action Alliance (Action Alliance) adopted a new vision statement. We seek a radically hopeful future where:

  • people are free and have what they need to reach their full potential;
  • relationships, families, and communities are healthy, equitable, nourishing, and joyful;
  • government, institutions, and systems are rooted in equity and justice; 
  • all decisions are grounded in whether they will benefit our future descendants and sustain our beautiful earth.

The Action Alliance has designed this training to accelerate our collective capacity to bring this vision into being. Every time that we bring people together, we have an opportunity to plant seeds for a just world for everyone. This experience offers space to reflect and practice ways to cultivate the soil to make way for strong roots, plant the seeds, nourish existing seeds so that they grow, and ease out any unhealthy plants we may discover along the way. Each immersion event is designed for 24 people

Together for a Just World: Planting the Seeds for Thriving Communities is a complimentary two-day training immersion experience designed for sexual and domestic violence advocates and preventionists, social justice warriors, and organizers working to end violence and build peaceful, just communities. The training will be held Dec. 6-8Interested in participating? Applicants must apply in pairs and submit their joint application by Oct. 22. (NOTE: Deadline extended to October 29!) Pairs should include individuals from different backgrounds and with different roles in the work to build a more just world. 

This three day, two night training includes all meals, single room, and the chance to step away from the demands of our daily lives and the interruptions of calls, chats, emails, and meetings. 

Please note that all applicants must be vaccinated against COVID-19 by the time of the training. Masks will be required in all indoor group settings. 

If your work includes educating people in your community, training new advocates and organizers, facilitating groups, creating social media, policy advocacy for equity and justice, or experimenting with new ways of promoting strong, healthy and thriving systems, we encourage you and a partner to apply.
