Building Movement 2012

Building Movement 2012

We just wrapped up our first movement convening, Building Movement 2012 in Tarrytown, New York. What an inspirational couple of days!

Over the course of two days, more than 100 allies working to end violence against girls and women and other social justice allies stepped away from their critically important everyday work to gather together to begin to deepen their collective work to end violence against girls and women.

Led by our pilot Movement Makers, Building Movement included spaciousness and unique activities that fostered reflection, sharing, listening and profound community building.  The Movement Makers laid out a vision and necessary pivots for ending violence against girls and women.

Attendees were invited to bring these conversations home to their organizations and community to engage everyone in a dynamic dialogue about where this movement is headed and what it will take to get there.  We encourage you to think about hosting similar conversations between now and the end of February – we’ve developed a discussion guide to help.

The days were packed with rich – and sometimes difficult – conversations which we believe is shaping the path to collective work. Suffice it to say, Tarrytown will never be the same!

Over the coming weeks the Movement Makers will be sharing reflections on this work and about Building Movement 2012. We invite you to follow along via the blog, post comments and questions. Join in the conversations by following the blog, posting comments, and starting conversations of your own.
