Learning and training
Trainings page – displays all upcoming trainings, and also has many past trainings that you can watch and resources you can absorb. There is a lot of knowledge out there that was hard won by the movements that came before us. To help us avoid making needless mistakes we should all aspire to train ourselves up as much as we can.
Read and sign the Code of Conduct / Anti-Discrimination statement, so we can move towards creating a safer and more welcoming space that actively addresses oppressive behavior.
