Who is it for?
Working on Our Power recognises the very limited spaces that exist for trans*, non-binary* and cis women of colour in Europe to learn, engage and organise. Therefore, the program and its content will focus on and be centered around the experiences of trans*, non-binary* and cis women of colour. You must be 18+ at the point of application.
This training programme is rooted in a commitment that seeks to fundamentally change the oppressive systems of capitalism, imperialism, patriarchy and white supremacy; towards a system based on justice and equity. As such, Working on Our Power’s participants will be engaged in any of the following activities that support movement building:
Elder - you help ground your community with a sense of history
Organiser - you form communities/networks of meaning and depth
Activist - you invest in creative ways for grassroots groups to take action
Politique - you’ve entered the political system or are building a political party
Campaigner - you build infrastructure for others to take action on social concerns
Artivist - you use creativity to inspire your communities by resisting and questioning power
Therapists / Healers - you break the cycle of violence that our communities experience from oppression
*We use asterisk (*) after trans and non-binary in order to include everyone who identifies along the trans spectrum (broadly undefined).
