This week, AORTA is sending out LOTS and LOTS of LOVE to you.
We celebrate and honor the caring relationships that support and feed us; giving thanks to our friendships, diverse families, and communities.
We just got home from a wonderful retreat in New Orleans. We revised our points of unity (to be posted soon!), discussed supporting youth leadership on the Left, biked around the French Corner and had a rad potluck with local organizers and activists!
Jenna hosted an anti-oppression fundamentals workshop for Philadelphia Food Coop Mariposa and 25 people attended! We love the workshops that support existing work and help people strengthen movements for justice.
We are so excited to be doing our 5th tour of the Pacific Northwest in October 1st-30th! We're visiting Portland, Olympia, Belingham, Seattle, and Vancouver & Victoria, BC. We look forward to seeing what transformations are afoot with projects we've worked with before AND are so excited to meet new communities, comrades, and organizations.
The summer conference season is coming to an end and AORTA is wrapping up and bringing closure to all the incredible work done throughout the last few months. We played major roles MC-ing and facilitating at the Allied Media Conference in Detroit, ReRoute Conference in Manhatten, and the Eastern Conference for Workplace Democracy (ECWD) in Philadelphia!
Dear beloveds in the Pacific Northwest! We are pleased to announce that kiran and Jenna will be returning your way for a Spring tour. We are now booking workshops, consulting, facilitation, and mediation for Olympia, Portland, Seattle, Bellingham, Vancouver, and anywhere (easily) in between!
