Building Power is a student led conference that provides attendees with the opportunity to learn about interconnected injustices and engage in collective liberation.
This year’s conference includes workshops and affinity group sessions on, but not limited to: environmental justice; food and land sovereignty; and housing disenfranchisement. The goal of this event is to create a space to strengthen community ties and mutual aid projects, as well as to supply attendees with the toolkit needed to partake in more sustainable and self sufficient practices in both their activism and personal life. Our keynote speaker will be Mama Shu, founder of an up and coming eco-village in Highland Park, Michigan.
The conference will be held on October 22 of this year from 10am-5:30pm at the School of Social Work. Food and Drinks will be provided. Attendance is open to all and we have the opportunity for students and staff to volunteer!
