As always, our goal is to shine a light on what's happening locally in New
York City and in the surrounding areas. We also hope to highlight the work
being done by social movement activists and organizations around the
country, from local grassroots organizing to national and international
How you choose to put your panel together is up to you, that said, here
are a few things we're looking to emphasize this year:
* Panels which analyze the work of the current U.S. Administration and
put it into context
* Strategies and tactics on how to tackle the current U.S.
* Strategies and tactics on self-defense structures for those who are
* Panels on political strategies during upcoming elections
* Skill-shares, workshops, performances, network-building sessions,
strategy round tables, curated exhibits, screenings, and forecast briefings
* Ways and strategies on transforming the current capitalist order to a
more just, more equal, and more ecologically responsible economic and
* Conversations that encourage long-term thinking about building
grassroots power, especially by centering marginalized voices and
supporting local organizing
* Events which help to identify and expand common ground among movements,
constituencies, issues, and ideas
* Sessions that highlight resistance efforts locally, nationally, and
* Events that help new activists grow into successful organizers
In previous years, we sorted and scheduled panels by putting panels of
similar topics into the same rooms, scheduling them back to back to give
activists the opportunity to delve deeper into the issues that interest
them. Our intent is to make it easier to connect to like-minded people and
to aid and strengthen networking among attendees and participants.
