Communities of color are devastated by wars waged against us in the name of safety. Slavery, divestment, displacement, and more are connected to community-level post-traumatic stress disorder and internalized oppression, which manifests in ways that make us play small, settle for less and work in isolation even when our work is about community and movement building. To transform self, systems and culture we must embody the change we envision using deep practice that grounds wisdom into our lives. This highly participatory session centers personal transformation, storytelling, community building and visioning to foster empowerment and interdependence among fundraisers and resource mobilizers. Using the Colorado Transformative Leadership Fellowship as a model, participants will begin visioning ways to individually and collectively raise resources to transform movements from the inside out.
