Daring to Be Powerful is our signature organizing institute for building skills, analysis of oppression & power, learning about current issues and campaigns to get involved with, and offering opportunities for strategizing and community organizing. 

Come join us for our upcoming sessions, designed specifically for LGBTSTGNC People of Color. 

It is strongly suggested to take both Part 1 and 2 in order. Daring to Be Powerful is one of New York City's largest People of Color centered community organizing workshops. The Audre Lorde Project aims to build both individual and collective power to better challenge the multiple oppressions faced by Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Two-Spirit, Transgender and Gender Non-Conforming People of Color communities. 

Part 1: Friday, May 3rd AND Saturday, May 4th 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM Foundations of Organizing: Utilizing study and lived experiences to begin dismantling oppressive structures. Great for new organizers, or folks going back to the basics! 

Part 2: Friday, May 10th AND Saturday, May 11th 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM Nourishing the Seed: A deeper dive in to the critical roles of how healing, safety, gender, and race operate within Community Organizing. Great for ALP members looking to expand their roles as organizers. 

All sessions of Daring to be Powerful will be held virtually. Zoom information will be sent to participants upon completion of the application review process. Submit the online application form by 11:59 pm on Sunday, April 28th. Please email rumi@alp.org with any questions!
