The Leap Manifesto: People's Platform as Organizing Tactic

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Leap Manifesto is a roadmap for how we can transition beyond fossil fuels in a way that creates a more just, fair, and caring world. The manifesto was initiated in the spring of 2015 at a two-day meeting attended by representatives from Canada's Indigenous rights, social and food justice, environmental, faith-based and labour movements. This experiential workshop presents some of the lessons from organizing the Leap Manifesto coalition, and what's happened since. We will also explore whether members of the NEC community see spaces and places around the country where a Leap-like process might be useful for ongoing work.
