ABOUT THE COMMUNITY LEADERSHIP SKILLS TRAINING SERIES
What do you want to organize OUTside the lines? Do you have an organizing project you are looking to build from the inside OUT, and need the skills to do it? We are here to cultivate your skills to build towards a dream project that you have wanted to bring to life.

We are committed to training and building our community members so that we are all recognized as individuals with power who are collectively building movement. We want you to have more tools to build vision and transform our lives!

Are you a LGBTSTGNC Immigrant who's fluent in English and another language? Are you a LGBTSTGNC person of color who's fluent in English and another language and wants to support immigrant rights work? Interested in gaining interpretation skills AND learning about interpreting for social justice?
"I am extremely thankful for the opportunity to have participated in The Interpreting for Social Justice training offered by the Audre Lorde Project. It was a relevant, useful and exciting training. I was able to connect with others from similar backgrounds and share real life situations and personal stories. All of these stories helped reinforce my desire to be active as an advocate in my own community and in my professional life. Together we were able to learn about: providing language accessibility to promote social justice, create multilingual spaces to support immigrant communities, and build alliances across communities. I highly recommend this training to other bi-lingual or multi-lingual LGBTSTGNC Immigrants of color who would like to utilize their privilege of being bi/multi lingual to promote social justice in their communities.
I have since been able to use my newly developed skills to provide socially just and ethical interpreting to immigrant people of color at my job and also through my membership with ALP. This has solidified my bond with other LGBTSTGNC Immigrant People of Color. I look forward to continuing to develop and use my skills for the advancement of historically and presently oppressed people."

Join Cara Page and Adaku Utah as we explore the history of state and private control and medical experimentation on Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Trans, Two Spirit, and Gender Non Conforming/People of Color for the profit of the medical industry and as an extension of policing, violence, and surveillance. We will look at the impact of these oppressive practices on our individual and collective bodies/lives and how we have transformed, resisted, and are responding to both historical and current stories.
Please note that the Audre Lorde Project offices will be closed from Monday June 27th thru Monday July 4th, 2016.
