The OUTsiderz: A Community Leadership Skills Training for Audre Lorde Project Community Members
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.
Out in the Night, directed by blair dorosh-walther, is a documentary about four young African American lesbians convicted for defending themselves in an assault in Greenwich Village in 2006. This film premiered in 2014, has won close to a dozen awards, and opened up the 28th season of POV on PBS this summer.
This event will include a post-screening dialogue between the audience, and three of the film’s subjects, Terrain Dandridge, Patreese Johnson and Renata Hill. Members of the Audre Lorde Project’s Safe Outside the System (SOS) program will moderate the discussion

- gain greater skills in interpretation.
- learn resources and strategies to use interpretation to generate income.
- better understand how to make our community spaces more accessible.
- share knowledge about health, social and community resources.
- share resources on translating health, sexuality and gender issues.
