In this challenging political climate many of us are ready to support those on the front lines of the fight for progressive change. We know that donating to grassroots, social justice organizations is one way to engage. But how do we decide when, where and how much to give? Should the urgency of the current moment change the way we give? This interactive, cross-class workshop will help you begin to think through these questions and get you started with creating a giving plan that aligns with your values. Dinner will be provided.

Creating a Social Justice Giving Plan During Turbulent Times A Cross-Class Workshop sponsored by the Social Justice Fund NW In this challenging political climate -- a right-wing backlash, xenophobia and white supremacy on the rise, and social justice movements poised to fight back -- many of us are ready to step up our engagement with organizations on the front lines of resisting, protecting, and laying the groundwork for progressive change. One way to engage is by donating to grassroots, social justice organizations. But how do you decide how much and to who? Should the urgency of the current moment change the way we give? This interactive, cross-class workshop will help you begin to think through these questions and get you started with creating a giving plan that aligns with your values. Whether you are trying to figure out how to start giving, or you are struggling with aspects of your current giving, this workshop will help you think about the big questions that can lead to a greater sense of purpose. We'll have plenty of time for discussion and offer resources that can help you move you towards action, taking time to reflect, learn from others, and come out ready to plan your giving for the year ahead.

Free workshop open to all progressive/radical activists. Many activists who work for social, political, and ecological justice struggle to maintain hope. The obstacles seem too large, our efforts too small, and often we feel alone with no support. Burnout and cynicism can be overwhelming. To honor the full range of the activist’s experience, we designed an experiential workshop that offers practices designed to support you and your communities. These practices center around dialogue, deep listening, creative process, wisdom from the natural world, and contemplation. Amy Livingstone, Deb Rodney, Jim Seger, and Theo Arnason, participants in Portland Occupsy, will conduct the workshop. Together they bring a wide range of experience as activists with expertise in dialogue, critical psychology, nonviolent communication, community organizing, spiritual practices, and the arts.
