Ya'll know what it is... The duty to love and protect each other is a priority for liberation work! Join ALP for a Community Security Training in preparation for our Trans Day Action 2019!
At this training you will learn skills to act as part of ALP's Self Determined Community Safety (community security) Team. This involves de-escalation tactics, how to mobilize against arrest, holding a perimeter, meeting community members' varying needs, intervening on inter-community violence, and more.
Join us as we explore the medical industrial complex as an extension of policing, violence, and surveillance of Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Trans, Two Spirit, and Gender Non Conforming/People of Color communities.
Join us as we gather to celebrate Audre Lorde's 85th birthday and her lasting legacy in our community! We will also honor and celebrate our resilient LGBTSTGNC Communities of Color in New York. Come for dinner, drinks, cultural performances, dancing, and good company! This is a completely FREE event. The space is wheelchair accessible. Childcare can be provided upon request. Dinner will begin at 6pm & the program will start at 7:00pm! Our intergeneration event is open to all LGBTSTGNC POC and Allies!
First aid is the initial intervention administered to a person suffering from a sudden illness, attack, or injury, before professional medical help is available. The purpose of this First Aid Workshop is to discuss and demonstrate emergency skills to preserve life, prevent worsening or deterioration of a situation, and to promote recovery. This workshop does not provide management of activist-specific injuries or scenes control and does not lead to First-Aid CPR certification.
As we continue to organize and fight for liberation from all the systems of oppressions that marginalizes us- there are 2 big questions that our communities have to work on: HOW DO WE ADDRESS VIOLENCE WITHIN OUR COMMUNITIES? HOW DO WE HOLD THOSE ACCOUNTABLE THAT HAVE CAUSED HARM WITHOUT PUNITIVE ACTION? Join us February 5th, 6:30pm at the Brooklyn ALP office- 85 South Oxford St, Basement floor- as we discuss Transformative Justice and we how we can collectively apply it effectively in our communities. Food and metrocards will be provided.
TransJustice Schools are for People of Color who identify as Trans and Gender Non-Conforming - for example, people who identify as trans, gender non-conforming, gender variant, gender deviant, butch lesbians, drag queens, bi-gendered, Two-Spirit, drag kings, femme queens, A.G., genderqueer, agender, andro, gender-benders, etc. - to expand our opportunities in creating spaces where we can build, learn, and support our collective work to liberate Trans and Gender Nonconforming Communities of Color.
