LET’S BUILD TENANT POWER! ✊🏽

Welcome to the first installment of a three-part series where we delve into tenant community building. In this initial workshop, we’ll explore:

 

- Local tenant history

- Organizing 101

- Know your rights

 

Throughout the series we’ll focus on literacy skills to better understand the legality of tenant organizing, cover tactics to organize community action for fair housing policies, and its relation to collective liberation here and abroad.

 

Details for upcoming workshops on July 14th and 21st from 12-3 PM will be announced closer to their date.

Community Animation: Collective Art Making for Collective Liberation 

Thursday July 11th  6 - 9PM

PLACE LB 2172 Pacific Avenue,

Long Beach, CA 

90806

Free Drop-In!

Join local artist Wynn Barnard (IG - @wynncredible) for a community animation workshop. 

Animations are created when we string together lots of images (called frames) to create the illusion of movement. For this workshop, participants will color in the frames for a short animation inspired by the movement for Palestinian liberation. 

As we color, we will consider the impact of our seemingly small individual contributions to collective movement-building, using each drawing as a prayer, a commitment or a demand for ending the genocide and building the world we want to live in.

This experimental workshop is an opportunity for us to come together around a simple, focused activity to share space, get to know each other, and reflect as we re-commit to the work ahead.

 

Free, drop-in, and food provided. Any donations will go to Gaza mutual aid. All ages and experience levels are welcome. DM @wynncredible with questions or access needs. Masks required!
