International Learning Exchange in South Africa
The third cohort of Movement Makers just returned from an international learning exchange in Cape Town and Johannesburg, South Africa.
The international learning exchange, a key part of the Move to End Violence program, is an opportunity to learn from and with allied activists and sisters movements on how we can build global movement for liberation and social change. (Read more about why an international exchange is a key component of this program.)
