The Anti-Racism, Equity and Justice (AREJ) Organizing Team is honored to sponsor the Good Work Institute for our March 22nd discussion at 12pm!
Just Transition: Situating Anti-Racism, Equity and Justice in Systems Change. Facilitated by the Good Work Institute
This mini-workshop provides an opportunity to explore a shared vision of Just Transition and consider the question: What will it take to build systems centered on care for each other and our shared home? How might our work play a role in social and ecological well-being? Through presentation, reflection, story sharing, and discussion, we will explore the Just Transition framework, principles and practices. You will have the chance to connect your own experience to extractive and regenerative economic paradigms and discuss ways you might weave Just Transition principles and practices into your anti-racist, equity and justice work.
We look forward to seeing you! If you have any questions about these events and how we run them, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Anti-Racism, Equity and Justice (AREJ) Organizing Team invites you to our next event this January 11th at noon via Zoom!
