Winning Justice through Diversity

Women leading change

“If we desire a society without discrimination, then we must not discriminate against anyone in the process of building this society” - Bayard Rustin

Join us for Learning Thursdays, a free weekly online learning opportunity for Citizens UK leaders and member institutions.

As a Broad-Based Organisation, we are taking the opportunity of this moment to learn and unlearn how we understand power, privilege, history, race, gender, class, sexual orientation and the experiences of people with protected characteristics through and within community organising.

How do we truly become a Broad-Based Organisation that is inclusive and diverse? How do we understand and challenge oppression in our organising?

With stories from organising history and current Citizens UK leaders, we will learn lessons of courageous organising and discuss how your chapter could become more diverse in its leadership and membership.

In four weeks, we will cover these themes:

  • April 1st - Organising for Racial Justice

  • April 8th - Winning against the odds: the power and possibilities of LGBTQ+ organising

  • April 22nd - Disabled People Leading Change

  • May 6th - Women Leading Change

Women leading change - 6th May

History is littered with powerful stories of women stepping forward to challenge and change the inequalities in society. In this session we’ll hear stories from women at the forefront of social change movements, learning about how they have developed leadership skills and strengthened their organisations in the process. We will provide space for group reflection, equipping and agitating you to return to your organisation and local chapter ready to grow and deepen your organising around women.

Register by filling in your details and you will receive the Zoom link for the session. Please remember to tell us which Citizens chapter you are a member of, or your institution is thinking of joining.

We look forward to seeing you there!
