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. DTBP 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 only. It is strongly suggested to take both Part 1 and 2 in order.
Part 1: Friday, October 22nd, 6pm-9pm AND Saturday, October 23rd, 6pm-9pm
- 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, November 12th, 6pm-8:30pm AND Saturday, November 13th, 6pm-8:30pm
- 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. The application will be open from August 27th - October 4th at https://alp.org/DTBP2021. Please email with any questions!
