Join The Interlocking Justice Institute for an 9-session (August-December) virtual cohort designed to give participants a foundational understanding of Interlocking Justice.
It doesn’t just matter that we go about the work of justice. It matters how we go about that work. What we do and how we do it is meant to be good medicine. An offering to one another in our journey toward mutual liberation. We are connected. Our work is connected. But we often don’t act like it. The Institute is led by the creator of Interlocking Justice, AnaYelsi Velasco Sanchez, and exists to teach movement leaders a way forward.
Cohort participants will engage in formal learnings and conversations specific to interlocking justice. Topics will include the history of interlocking justice and relevant frameworks; a deep-dive into the 5 core practices of interlocking justice; and training in the personal and collective application of interlocking justice.
The Institute’s Fall 2023 cohort will meet virtually twice a month (once in December) for 2 hour sessions on Saturday afternoons for a total of 9 sessions.
Unlike the typical online experience, the institute provides live, real-time facilitation and one-on-one engagement that supports each individual’s learning journey. Participants will be required to attend 75% of the sessions (miss no more than 2 sessions) and complete assignments (~hour per class).
If you have an accommodation need (for example, if you have a hearing impairment and an assigned video does not have captions), please inform the instructor as soon as possible. All sessions will be captioned, In English, and we are working to make the cohort more accessible overall, but as we make these improvements, we want to address immediate concerns as swiftly and effectively as possible.
