This intimate, two-day offering enables a cohort of participants to learn the foundational principles for Healing to Action’s survivor-led work. Our core modules are the product of over 10 years of tireless collaboration between survivors, labor organizers, attorneys, anti-rape advocates, and community leaders to support survivors of gender-based violence while building survivor power and leadership.
Organizers, advocates, and leaders participating across different movements will collaborate to explore the root causes of gender-based violence, build concrete skills for supporting survivors, and co-create a critical dream space to imagine new iterations of survivor power.
