Behind every victory and win of our movements for social change there has always been a group of dedicated and passionate people who’ve visioned a better future and organized and mobilized people to make it possible. There have also been moments where our groups have fallen apart, been infiltrated or just disintegrated due to many reasons that could have been prevented. In this workshop we will study closely the elements that have been essential to groups and communities thriving in their struggle for liberation as well as the elements that need to be strengthened in our current movements in order for us to stick together and transform society. This workshop introduces our Thriving Groups framework and our workshop series designed to help us embody our values in organizational practices to foster participatory democracy and shared power.
By the end of this workshop, participants will...
- Explore their personal experiences in successes and difficulties when working with groups towards social change
- Learn about the key elements that must be present in order for groups to thrive and reach their goals
- Practice problem solving solutions to common challenges in our movement groups
- Practical tools to improve and fortify their current group culture
- Learn about future Thriving Groups series
This workshop is ideal for:
Activists, community organizers, movement groups and organizations looking to learn skills, tools and frameworks that can help our movement thrive and actualize liberation, justice while growing a beloved community.

What’s a Rich Text element?
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
Static and dynamic content editing
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize formatting for each rich text
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
