Seeds, Stories, Strategies: A Climate Justice Web Series on Wednesdays, July 1, July 8, July 15, 3-5pm PT / 5-7pm CT / 6-8pm ET. Seeds, Stories, Strategies is a timely collaboration between Center for Cultural Power, Center for Story-Based Strategy, Movement Generation, Movement Strategy Center, and Race Forward. As five national field-building organizations focused on activating narrative, culture, organizing and movement strategy for social and racial justice, we are coming together at this time, amidst the deepening planetary crises of COVID-19 and climate change, to offer up a capacity-building series for the environmental justice field and grassroots environmental orgs. This three-part webinar series will bring together grassroots leaders, community organizers, and allies to nurture the seeds of an irresistible future that works for people and the planet. We will learn and share stories about narrative and cultural strategies rooted in community, and offer tools and frameworks to support radical imagining, narrative-building, and movement-building to advance climate justice. Additional information about topics and presenters will be announced in advance shortly. Participants are encouraged, but not required, to attend all three webinars. Sessions will take place on Zoom. Spanish and ASL interpretation, and closed captioning will be provided. Additional accessibility features may be available by request.
