Author, activist and facilitator adrienne maree brown is coming to town and we are co-creating a space to gather Atlanta’s emergent strategists*, organizers, artists, healers, and facilitators living and working for black liberation.
**This is a space for Black people, trans and queer people, and women of color.**
Please plan to arrive on time and stay the entire time because we’ll be focusing on relationship building. Please share this invitation with your people.
This gathering is co-hosted by Snap Co (Solutions Not Punishment), Racial Justice Action Center, Project South, Georgia WAND, SONG, SisterSong, ATL is Ready, Charis Books and More/Charis Circle, Beautiful Ventures, Self Care After Series, Roan Coughtry, Jen Willsea, and Mattice Haynes.
*emergent strategy as defined by adrienne maree brown is…
– adaptive and relational leadership model found in work of Octavia Butler
– strategies for organizers building movements for justice and liberation that leverage relatively simple interactions to create complex patterns, systems, transformations—including adaptation, interdependence and decentralization, fractal awareness, resilience and transformative justice, nonlinear and iterative change, creating more possibilities
– ways for humans to practice being in right relationship to our home and each other, to practice complexity, grow a compelling future together through relatively simple interactions
– how we intentionally change in ways that grow our capacity to embody the just and liberated worlds we long for
