Daring to be Powerful (DTBP) is one of NYC's best training on community organizing, power, & oppression for Lesbian Gay Bisexual Two-Spirit Trans & Gender Non-Conforming People of Color! (LGBTSTGNC POC). The Audre Lorde Project aims to build both individual and collective power to better challenge the multiple oppressions faced by LGBTSTGNC POC communities. This training program therefore allows for skills-building, analysis of oppression, power & current issues, and offers opportunities for strategizing and additional investments in community organizing.
Come join us for our upcoming sessions. It is strongly suggested to take both Part 1 and 2 in order.
