Solidarity School

This Fall, we are diving into SMWC’s first ever Solidarity School! This seven-session political education event is focused on understanding SMWC’s core values and theory of change. We’ll learn about human rights and how, through organizing, we build the collective power necessary to win them. We will also examine the root causes of oppression and how we build solidarity for our collective liberation. Through this school we hope to support new leaders to have the tools we need to guide SMWC’s future and build the power of human rights organizing in Maine (and beyond!) Through poems, art, readings, games, and conversation, this program will examine the myth of scarcity of resources in the United States, and how there really is enough for all.
