For generations black communities have created movements while simultaneously experiencing grief, pain, and trauma. For many of us organizing is a key strategy for our resilience in addition as a way to create transformative change for black liberation. This interactive workshop will focus on critical skills and issues that come up when supporting recent survivors of violence and surviving families to organize. We will discuss rapid incident response, gaining consent, building trust, choosing targets and tactics, and navigating trauma and triggers. In addition, participants will leave with practical tools for self care and building collective resilience and power. This workshop is a queer and trans inclusive space and will center the experiences of black trans and queer survivors while talking about general principles of working collaboratively with survivors and surviving families.
