Join Visionary Organizing Lab at Align Brooklyn NY


Visionary Organizing Lab
Dear Friend –Join Visionary Organizing Lab at Align Brooklyn NY for part two of a three part series in building beloved community and explore how we might create community that honors the sacredness of the human personality.

In part one we concluded that human beings are connected to each other and the earth in ways that are economic, social, ecological, political, and spiritual. In this session we will explore how we might use these connections to build community guided by King’s notion of agape, or the willingness to go to any extent to restore community.

Through small group discussions and interactive exercises, over the course of two and a half hours we will collectively explore what it might mean to build community from these connections in ways that honors the earth, human dignity, and the sacredness of the human personality. We will explore how people develop a sense that they matter and how this sense is informed by economic, social, and political relationships. Finally, we will explore how the connections among us might be organized in ways useful to building beloved community and explore how we must transform ourselves and the world to build it.

You do not need to have attended part one to attend part two. You can register here and please click here to view and share the event on Facebook.

A $10 suggested donation will be collected at the door. No one will be turned away due to lack of funds.

We look forward to seeing you on the 20th.
