We are thrilled to offer “We Rise: Training for Liberation and Healing” as a year-long cohort program for women-identified, transgender and gender non-conforming organizers and members of base-building organizations.
The goal of We Rise is to train high-skilled leaders capable of building more sophisticated and interconnected movements. Priority is given to members of organizations fighting for safety and against criminalization, and the program is only open to people of color.
We Rise is an evolving project of Enlace. This is the third time we are offering We Rise, and it will be the most in-depth, transformative program yet. We began offering We Rise last March as a one-day training for communities targeted direclty by the Trump administration. In the fall, we expanded We Rise into a two-month people-of-color-only cohort model with an additional focus on wellness. Leaders developed during those trainings will be returning to help facilitate the 2018 We Rise program.
Building a movement led by womxn, transgender and gender non-conforming people of color toward liberation and healing.
The Enlace Institute We Rise is only possible because of the generous support of hundreds who believe in the leadership of womxn, transgender and gender noncomforming people of color, and that those who are most deeply impacted are the right people to build towards justice.
If it is within your means, consider donating generously today. Contact if you would like to discuss a larger gift towards We Rise.
"What does healing informed leadership training look like? It looks like acknowledging that women, transgender and gender noncomforming folks of color have been leading the fight for justice since the dawn of time. "
