the project

We’re raising funds to send Shimekia Nichols, Soulardarity’s Deputy Director, to Movement Generation’s Justice and Ecology Retreat from Wednesday May 13th - Sunday May 17th 2020 at the Occidental Arts & Ecology Center in Occidental, CA. The training will include learning and strategizing with a select cohort of local and national leaders of racial, economic and environmental justice movements. We will explore the depths and connections of the current ecological, economic, and social crises and design key strategic movement interventions.
