Mobilize with the Audre Lorde Project this Saturday at the Brooklyn Pride Twilight March! Pull out your poom poom shorts, glitter, platforms, drums, and gorgeous posters!  March with us to take back the streets and joyfully resist the corporatization and policing of pride while building safety for our people. We will also be wearing all black clothing as a contingent.

Bring your friends, kids, family, and loved ones! (If you have furry four legged friends, please remember to put them on a leash)

We'll gather at the Key Foods parking lot on 5th Ave. and Sterling St. in Park Slope from 6-6:30pm, and the parade "steps off" promptly at 7:00pm.
Here's a link to the route map, http://brooklynpride.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/MapFlyer2015.jpg. The route is 0.8 miles long, straight down 5th Ave.
You can get to the Key Foods parking lot by taking the subway to Atlantic Terminal 2,3,4,5,D,N,Q,R,W , then walking 5 blocks down 5th Ave. Let's show Brooklyn how fabulous, united, and powerful we are!

See you in the streets!

S.O.S Open Cypher: Love Under Capitalism

When: 
Tuesday, February 6, 2018 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Audre Lorde wrote "Each time you love, love as deeply as if it were forever/only nothing is eternal." In our current time, living under capitalism and many other conditions, we know that it is not love or collectivism that is easily uplifted or maintained, it is individualism and lovelessness. Our pysches are deeply impacted by this and we in turn internalize it and learn to hate ourselves, each other and love those who oppress us. As organizers- it is our duty to always to put love at the root of our work- it's how we create people's change!

Join ALP's Safe OUTside the System Collective as we cyphe on our experiences of love and community organizing, dreaming of liberatory strategies for abolition, while we also plan for our collective and individual wellness as we move throughout the world.

Safe OUTside the System Collective active and core members will facilitate the cypher. We invite you to connect with us and share stories to better understand one another in our pursuit of freedom and liberation. Food and metrocards will be provided.

If you have any questions, comments or concern, please email sos@alp.org for more information. RVSP is required to receive address.

OUTsiderz Series: Facilitation Skills!

When: 
Wednesday, January 17, 2018 - 5:45pm to 9:00pm

Grow your participation, by learning facilitation!
Facilitation is a great way to hold space, ideas, and conversation among many different people. In this session of the OUTsiderz Series, we will be learning some ways to brew dialogue, and how to engage folks on multi-sensory levels of participation.

We're aiming to have folks leave with:
-The politic behind Facilitation and Teaching (and the power dynamics internal to those practices)
-New tools to practice facilitation & how to make your own!
-Fun and practice with other LGBTSTGNC POC folks to allow the skills in to your body and spirit
