Note on cancellation from the trainers:  When we originally chose Saturday, March 24th as our date for the workshop, the March for Our Lives — entirely led by young people organizing against gun violence — had not been announced yet. After careful deliberation, and given our topic, we have decided to postpone our workshop so that all are free to attend if they so choose.

Class description

In this workshop, the trainers will facilitate “cross cultural” dialogue between self-identified elders and millennials. We will ask and examine key questions: What hinders these two age groups from being co-conspirators in service to social justice? What can make intergenerational organizing happen? After a “getting to know you” portion of the workshop, we will then identify a common cause, and plan a concrete action related to that cause.

Note: This class is intended to be an intergenerational discussion, so registration is limited to individuals who are seniors or millennials. If you have questions about whether this class is right for you, please contact the registrar at registration@truthschool.org.
