Thank you for cooking with us at the March 5 Southern Beyond Survival workshop about Community Organizing. The recipes y’all were sharing for community building, investigate and educate, and collective action are contributing to our collective cookbook of knowledge around our organizing and movement building work.

Thanks to the time we spent together in our shared kitchen, we are all a little more equipped, a little more knowledgeable, our recipe books are fuller, and we’ve all got some interesting recipes and experiments to try out in our communities!

We encourage you to keep sharing these morsels with your folks and keep trying out and putting into practice these tools and approaches.

If you were there, we would really appreciate your taking three minutes to complete the evaluation survey, so we can really serve up some useful and delicious.
