Be a Movement Maker to end violence against women and girls


Pciture of green grass with blue sky with words saying Apply to be a movement makerApplications are now open to apply to join the 4th cohort of Move to End Violence Movement Makers.  As I recently completed my life-changing experience as a member of the third cohort of Movement Makers, I strongly encourage people committed to ending sexual violence and domestic violence to apply for this opportunity.  By bringing together leaders and activists from many different social justice movements, we are creating a powerful catalyst for creating a world without gender based violence.

In the last two years, I learned so much: I have gained many skills; I have connected with a great community of people who are making changes in their communities; and I changed how I look at and talk about change. This experience has strengthened my efforts to center the leadership and work of those who have been historically marginalized in my work, has supported my efforts to move toward transformative  justice, and to explicitly address the need to dismantle systems of oppression such as white supremacy.

For me, movement making aligns with my work to prevent sexual violence and domestic violence. In my Ignite Talk Movement Building and the Prevention of Sexual Violence at the 2016 RPE Leadership training, I shared some of my insights on how we can create change using the concepts I learned from Move to End Violence.

Move to End Violence is a national project of the NoVo FoundationApplications are due June 15, 2017.
