What is Decolonize?
DECOLONIZE is a radical retreat for people of color to listen, learn, teach, engage and build with one another over the course of two days. The purpose of this time is to bring together activists working across human, animal and environmental justice movements to better understand each other, challenge each other and unite in the fight to decolonize ourselves as individuals and as a community within the United States. While pushing for policy and structural change is important, the un-conference is a space to push beyond dismantling oppressive systems and imagine alternatives for the present and future of our communities.
Who should sign up?
Only people of color can attend this event. White allies are encouraged to support by making a donation/reparation. All ages and activist experience levels are welcome. We ask that all attendees do their best to attend the entire event on both Saturday & Sunday.
Is there a cost?
No, this event is free for all attendees. Selected speakers will be provided a small honorarium in addition to housing and transportation, if needed. We will also provide lunch, snacks, and water to all attendees and speakers on both days. Carpools can also be arranged.
This form is to help us better understand your experience and interests in order to create an event that you will enjoy and learn from. If a conflict arises and you are no longer able to attend, please inform us immediately so that we may open your spot to another person.
As mentioned above, priority will be given to those that can attend both days (Saturday & Sunday, 10 am to 5 pm).
