March 8: AORTA Conflict Resolution Workshop in Providence

Dear Providence & Boston-Area friends,
We’re excited to offer a public workshop facilitated by AORTA trainer Jenna Peters-Golden on March 8 in Providence!

Here are the details:


Resolutions not Ruins: Conflict Resolution in Your Organization and Collective

As in all communities, conflict in organizations is unavoidable. It is also uncomfortable. In working through conflict, the question shouldn’t be, “How do we prevent conflict?” but rather “How do we address conflict in ways that are healthy and build a stronger organization?”

This workshop will map out how systemic power is one of the main roots in conflict, while we build skills to recognize and address how systemic oppression moves through conflict. In the process we’ll share AORTA’s conflict resolution practices and methods in order to get a jump start in developing tools and processes tailored to your own organization and lives whether you are mediating conflict or a participant in it. 


Date | Time

March 8, 2014 | 1 pm – 4 pm


186 Carpenter St., Providence RI


Sliding scale $10-$30; no one turned away for lack of funds.


The space has two small concrete steps leading up to it, but wide doors — we will be able to do some wheelchair lifts into the space [you can see a picture of the steps here]. The space has an ADA bathroom. In order to create a space where folks with chemical sensitivities can participate, please refrain from wearing perfumes, colognes or other scented products (including essential oils) and smoke far away from the entrance to the space. Visit this site for info on how to support folks with multiple chemical sensitivities.


Join the event on facebook, or just show up!


AORTA is a collective of educators devoted to strengthening movements for social justice and a solidarity economy. We work as consultants and facilitators to expand the capacity of cooperative, collective, and community based projects through education, training and planning. We base our work on an intersectional approach to liberation because we believe that true change requires uprooting all systems of oppression.
