The need for community organizations and practitioners to remain connected and informed during the pandemic is particularly urgent. The 2020 Gathering took place virtually over a week in December, retaining the spirit of collaboration and solidarity.
We know you’re asking big questions: how to continue serving our communities and mandates when the reality of our work is constantly changing? How do we continue to weave our movements, and fight for a more equitable future if we can’t connect and organize? How do we envision a future when the present itself is overwhelming? Where does our economy go from here?
Delivered virtually through a combination of discussions, interactive learning sessions, and connecting events, the Gathering strengthens solidarity and belonging among the Network and community builders. It deepens our ability to work collaboratively and sharpens our understanding of challenges, priorities, and vision for our community building work.
