Beautiful Trouble Creative Nonviolence in a Time of Crisis - Webinar

Beautiful Trouble Creative Nonviolence in a Time of Crisis - Webinar

We were thrilled to host our good friends from Beautiful Trouble for this engaging webinar. Their creative approach to bold nonviolent action is needed now more than ever. 

At this moment they write, “a renegade bug is showing how deeply broken our system is. Beyond the absolutely critical tasks of taking care of yourself, harm-reduction, and looking out for those around us who are most struggling, we must also make that brokenness plain. We do not get to choose the historic moments we are born into, but we do get to choose how we respond. And as we recover, and put our world back together, we have a chance to put it back together differently and better.”

In that spirit, we invite you to join in exploring some of the most creative and effective social movement responses to COVID-19 to date. For more background, see this powerful piece - Beautiful Trouble’s irreverent guide to activism in the time of pandemic, aka “HOLY SH*T! 7 things to do instead of hoarding toilet paper”
