What does harassment look and feel like? How can you safely intervene?
Join Debjani Roy and Agunda Okeyo, Bystander Intervention Program educators & trainers at Hollaback!, and Yasmin Safdié, Senior Manager of Organizing and Advocacy at the New York City Anti-Violence Project, in an intersectional, LGBTQi-inclusive discussion about what being a 'good bystander' means, and the work that is being done to monitor hate groups and hate crimes in America.
"The hate that I saw on Saturday is something that I've never ever seen before, or that I've ever felt before." We are so grateful to have gotten to hear directly from Connie, a brave and beautiful young woman who was in Charlottesville last week and was hit by the same car that killed Heather Heyer.
There are several things you can do right now to help. Are you ready get started?
In the wake of this divisive election, a rise in hate crimes, and a rising fear and suspicion of each other, we’re hungrier than ever for spaces to break bread, be heard, and listen deeply to others. We’re teaming up with #ThePeoplesSupper to help help bring our communities together this summer.
Let’s set an intention of creating replenishing and healing spaces for members of our communities that deepen our relationships with one another. Find or host a supper potluck, and join us to sign the Pledge of Allegiance to Each Other!
2017 marked the 22nd year of World Peace and Prayer Day, an international and intergenerational celebration for people of all faiths, nations, races, ages and genders who share concern for the welfare of humanity and the Earth to share in One Prayer. It has been hosted at sacred sites in communities all over the world, and this year Chief Arvol Looking Horse, the chief of Oceti Sakowin camp at Standing Rock, led a prayer from the sacred site of Mauna Kea, Hawaii.
The ceremony took place on June 21, 2017, but we can aways come together to pray for peace. Will you host or attend a prayer gathering in your area to help your community get rooted in the power of love?
This past April, people came together in flashmobs for a global day of song & sharing with the artist MILCK, in honor of both Maya Angelou’s birthday and Dr. Martin Luther King's “The Time to Break Silence” speech. We are determined to continue singing for both inspirational figures and for all who aspire towards peace and love any day of the year! Will you join us by either attending or hosting a flashmob?

There were 22,600 retired coal miners and their dependents at risk of losing their health care if Congress didn't act.The same big coal companies that had destroyed our environment had now used loopholes in our bankruptcy laws to throw away benefit obligations to retirees.
We couldn't let that happen. Together we helped push Congress to #KeepThePromise and pass the Miners Protection Act to permanently extend their health benefits!LEARN MORE »
