Rising Tide Chicago invites you a workshop and discussion on direct action and movement building in our current political moment.
Come to learn more about direct action: what it is, why people use it and how it’s been used in the past to create justice.
This will be followed by a discussion on our current political moment and what we need to do to protect our communities and environment from attack and create the world we want and need.
There has been a recent uptick in violence against immigrants, women, people of color, LGBTQ folx, indigenous communities, healthcare, and our environment. These attacks are not new, but rather a continuing product of the interlocking systems of white supremacy, patriarchy, heteronormativity, climate change, colonialism, and capitalism. We will break down some of these ideas and discuss the role of direct action in challenging these systems of oppression and creating alternatives.
This event is a great way to learn more about Rising Tide Chicago and how to get involved with our local action around climate change and justice.
