Homeroom | Every other Saturday at 11 AM Pacific Time
Hosted by Sophie Reiff with virtual care lab
Homeroom is a virtual space for people who do community organizing work, or who are interested in community organizing work, to gather and discuss how their organizing work intersects with notions of personal and collective ethics, somatics, and longform histories of movement building.
In our meetings, we will discuss big-picture and theoretical concerns in the work, as well as offer accountability skills and emotional support to each other. We can give and receive guidance on how to navigate conflict in transformational justice spaces.
About the host: Sophie Reiff is a writer, performer, and organizer based on unceded Tongva land commonly known as Los Angeles, California. Her nonfiction writing work focuses on race and land use, botany, memory and ancestral reckoning, and humor. Her organizing work ranges from indigenous water rights in Nevada, to Palestinian land rights, to immigration justice and abolitionism. In both her writing and organizing, she aims to undo inherited neoliberal ideology by grounding herself in her self-defined personal ethics. Affiliated groups include Housing Works NYC, Jewish Voice for Peace, Bend the Arc, Sunrise, Never Again Action, Resource Generation, and Movimiento Cosecha. She studied nonviolent direct action planning under Nadine Bloch of Beautiful Trouble. She has also studied Jewish chaplaincy, using notions of what is sacred to support embodied, critical listening.
This workshop will take place on Zoom, with a capacity of 20 participants.
