What is one common denominator among these movements? Strong relationships.

Join us as speakers share transformative practices and experiences around building and sustaining relationships at the grassroots level and across institutions. We will hear about different models and approaches that can increase solidarity across issues, movements, and sectors while preserving and amplifying the voices of those we serve.
