Avoiding Destruction of Your Movement: Reducing Fragmentation to Build Cohesive Activism

Crysta Heart, Sabrina Morgan, Serpent Libertine #cconavoid CatalystCon East 2014


  1. Activism is about passion. We all have it. The passion behind our beliefs moves us to action. But what happens when everyone in a particular movement does not share the exact same philosophies? How are newer activists, who are still learning and evolving, nurtured and supported within a group? Why does divisiveness between individuals cause stagnation in our activist networks and what are better ways to move forward from these issues? How do we learn to see past our differences to create stronger networks and a more powerful movement? Join us in this session devoted to reducing fragmentation of activist organizations to create cohesive partnerships within our own ranks.
