Building Movement Conversations

On December 5th, 2012 cohort 1 of Move to End Violence launched Building Movement Conversations to catalyze movement-wide conversations about our vision to end violence against girls and women in the U.S. and the shifts we need to make as a movement to move effectively towards that vision.

The purpose of Building Movement Conversations is to engage activists, leaders, and community members in dynamic conversation about the world we are trying to create and what it will take to get there. Ultimately, we seek to:

  • Build critical mass
  • Foster alignment
  • Move together

Using the Building Movement Conversations Guide [available in English and Spanish], Movement Makers and allies in the field have been conducting conversations nationwide to share this working vision, collect input, and foster alignment around a shared horizon for this work. Learn more about the feedback collected from these conversations, here.

Cohort 2 of Move to End Violence has helped to refine our shared understanding of the vision and pivots by making more explicit our commitment to racial equity as an element of gender justice to ensure that the change we seek helps every last girl. Learn more about Cohort 2’s work in this area.
