Without disrupting, challenging, and transforming systems – we will never achieve an equitable and racially just nation. This includes systems not only in our communities and on a local and national level, but also within our own organizations. System change requires collaboration and mobilization to create the transformation necessary for all people to thrive. As the mid-term elections loom and with voter participation more critical than ever, our Upswell Fall Pop-Up will focus on advocacy and power — critical components of system change — and provide you with tangible tools and skills to help get system change underway. Stay tuned for when registration opens for this virtual Pop-Up.
2022 UPSWELL POP-UPS
Upswell Pop-Ups keep our Upswell community connected. It’s how we “keep it real” throughout the year. Each Pop-Up has a different focus – binding our ties as people and communities, making sense of the changing world around us, and exploring big ideas about how to tackle what comes next.
New this year – the Exchanges will be the last segment of each Pop-Up, so you can immediately share your reflections on what you heard while it is fresh in your mind, These segments will be facilitated by Dr. Cheryl Hall-Russell, President and Chief Cultural Consultant of Black Women Wise Women, LLC, whom you may remember as facilitator of last year’s Pop-Up Exchanges.
