Join the Social Thought and Political Economy Program for TOOLS FOR COLLECTIVE LIBERATION: ADVANCING ECONOMIC JUSTICE THROUGH MULTIRACIAL SOLIDARITY with ESTEBAN KELLY of the US Federation of Worker Cooperatives:
Challenging racism requires pairing principled commitment to solidarity with clear tactics for community economic development. In this workshop, we will discuss the connections among islamophobia, xenophobia, and anti-black racism. By placing accountable, multi-racial organizing at the center, we will build analysis of how racial and ethnic liberation are linked with all forms of liberation. Together we will delve into practical approaches to inclusion, allyship, and solidarity principles in order to improve our relationships and communities while advancing toward collective liberation. Participants will reflect on the “Vision for Black Lives,” a #BLM policy platform, as it relates to student learning & organizing on campus. To conclude, students will develop concrete action steps to influence conditions in their communities and in these times of deep uncertainty.
Esteban is the Executive Director for the US Federation of Worker Cooperatives and a founder of AORTA, (Anti-Oppression Resource & Training Alliance), a worker co-op whose consulting supports organizations fighting for social justice and a solidarity economy. He was the first Board President of the cross-sector Philadelphia Area Cooperative Alliance, and recently worked at the New Economy Coalition. Esteban is a mayoral appointee to the Philly Food Policy Advisory Council following eight years as a worker-owner in Mariposa Food Co-op’s Staff Collective. Esteban holds a B.S from UC Berkeley, and is a Doctoral / Phd Candidate at CUNY’s Graduate Center where he received a Master’s Degree in Anthropology.

The next scheduled training is February 25th in Northampton. This one is being organized by American Friends Service Committee although the trainers are also on the Sugar Shack roster. There will be some folks there who are training for purposes other than joining Sugar Shack Alliance to participate in our actions as members of Sugar Shack affinity groups. However, we want to encourage you, urge you, implore you to sign up for this training which will well prepare you for joining us.
To register and get more information, go to www.AFSCwm.org and click on trainings at the top in bright green.
The sooner you get trained the better! We would love to have you.
You must register with AFSC to be signed up for this training. Clicking “going” on Facebook will not sign you up. You will receive further information with details of this training from AFSC.
This is an opportunity to learn about how to recruit and retain new members, how to push your city or town to go 100% renewable, and how to advocate for better clean energy and climate policy at the State House. Coming to one of our trainings is one of the best ways to get the skills and information you need to be a powerful advocate for bold action on climate!
In order to make this free training possible, we need another 5 people to register TODAY. If you’re interested, sign up now!

Film Screening! FRONTLINE’s Children of Syria is a story of war, grief, hope, and what it means to start again.
Filmed on the ground as the fighting rages, the documentary follows four Syrian children — Sara, Farah, Helen and Mohammed — for three years, from their struggle to live through the Assad regime’s siege of their city, to the devastating kidnapping of their father, to the beginning of their new lives as refugees.
