Liberation activist days: fresh faces, new skills, much inspiration

Monday 25-09-2017 - 14:30

You might be running a campaign for gender neutral toilets or perhaps you’re trying to tackle the black attainment gap. Whatever liberation cause you’re working on, our activist training day can help you win. 

Book your place at our Manchester or London liberation activist training day now!

We’re putting on liberation activist training days to support you to get skilled up, learn new knowledge, and meet other activists from around the country to help run and win on liberation campaigns on your campus.

Whether you’re a sabb, elected to student council, sit on a society committee or spend all your free time fighting for liberation on campus, these training days are for you. We’ll kick the day off with a conversation on intersectionality – what do we know about it, what more can we learn?

During the day you’ll have the chance to learn how to plan a campaign, get clued up on your right to protest, hone your public speaking and media skills, gain policy making knowledge, and practice the courageous conversations you’ll need to have with the people you’ll need to influence.   

We’ll also run campaign-specific sessions including combatting sexual violence, tackling the black attainment gap, and fighting transmisogyny. We’ll end the day by starting a conversation about community accountability – what do we do when we hurt each other, how do we move forward?

It’ll be practical, hands-on and reflective, what’s more you’ll be in a room full of like-minded people who share your values and are committed to making change happen – a space where magical things can happen!         

Book your place at either our North or South activist training day today for a day of thinking, doing and scheming to create a more liberated campus and society. Details for the training are:

Manchester
Wednesday 25 October 2017, 9.30am – 5.30pm
Manchester Metropolitan Students’ Union, Manchester M15 6AD

London
Tuesday 31 October 2017, 9.30am – 5.30pm
Resource for London, London N7 6PA

We have limited places so book yours today. We recommend sending two people from your union – that way it’ll give them the chance to explore what they’re learning together and allow them to multiply their impact on campus.

Get in touch with any questions, otherwise see you in either Manchester or London!
