Carmen’s Team Pick:
Beginning on March 19th in Oakland, CA, the Brown Boi Project’s next 5-day leadership retreat is a space for their members to “develop deep skills and life experiences that we can draw on to build collective power within our communities to achieve social justice.” Attendees will have important conversations about race, class, culture, gender and sexuality, and figure out the best strategies for helping their own communities. Bois will come from around the nation for the community organizing retreat. You can apply online to attend. If selected, your travel, food, and lodging expenses will be completely covered; applications should have under 7 years of experience.
The project seeks out anyone with “a strong commitment to becoming their best self.” Bois currently participating in the project come from a wide range of backgrounds, career fields, and dream worlds. Sounds just like you! The catch here is that if you apply and are selected, you have to let me know so that we can share a moment via the comments section and I can hug you with my virtual arms. Now go forth and apply, kids!
