The Symposium for Social Change is a multi-part series of workshops starting in February. There will be four additional workshops presented at the Bridge Crossing Jubilee March 6th, 2021 and each month after that through 2021. Please make sure to register to get all of the information!

The first FREE workshop in the 2021 Symposium for Social Change is this Saturday, February 13th, 2021 at 1:00 pm CST

"Yes, This is Your Grandparents Movement: The Significance of Intergenerational understanding and shared action"

The freedom movement is the story of generations. It is and will always comprise the past, present and sincere hope for the future. This inspiring session explores the necessity of intergenerational dialogue, shared understanding, and collective socio-political action. Activists and scholars will share the history of interconnected action and the urgency of now. Movement making is a value of the collective and not the sole property of any generation. Therefore, each generation possesses only the responsibility to embrace our past, act in the present, and pass on the treasure of our shared movement to the next generation.

Get access by registering for the Jubilee for free at www.selmajubilee.com if you have not already! Space for the interactive opportunity for this workshop is limited to the first 100 people, so make sure you get registered and arrive early! For those that don't get into the interactive portion of the workshop, you can still watch live on our Facebook page.
