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 10 years of tireless collaboration between survivors, labor organizers, attorneys, anti-rape advocates, and community leaders to support survivors of trauma 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.
