About this Invitation
The Thriving Resilient Communities Collaboratory (TRCC) is inviting people to gather for virtual “Dream” conversations through June 2021. This “laboratory” aims to create a “brave space.” We are experimenting with our capacity to engage from a place of trust and mutual respect.
This Hosting Team is convening a conversation to explore this question: What would be possible if the defund movement, the regenerative and the reparations movement joined forces?
These movements all think in a multi-systemic way - even if they choose to operate only within a few systems. The defund movement is grounded in
anti-oppression and a critique of power. The regenerative movement is grounded in expanding potential - not just solving problems. The reparations movement is grounded in restitution, rehabilitation and compensation to people who have suffered egregious human rights violations. Our question is aimed at identifying what becomes possible by employing each perspective simultaneously.
The conversation will be hosted by skilled facilitators using the questions and concepts outlined by Peter Block in his book Community: The Structure of Belonging.
The conversation will take place virtually on June 16th from 2pm-4pm eastern time. To enter the Zoom click here!
