“We Advocate Freedom!” Teach-In Series // Session 1

June 27 | 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM MDT

Session 1: Strategies Toward Effective Social Change: Personal and Institutional Commitments

This 1st in a series of 5 sessions will invite dialogue on the multiple paths advocates for change can work within or outside dominant systems to advocate inclusion and freedom. We will hear from veteran leaders and have the opportunity to wrestle with the moral, ethical, and spiritual realities of advocacy on complex and uncertain issues. The conversation will explore the issues of protest and consequences; non-violent and violent resistance; community organizing, and internal/external approaches.
