In light of all that is taking place - particularly the fragmentation of community which enables tragedies like police brutality, stripping of employee rights, and gentrification of whole cities - it is time for us to re-establish a sense of unity and self-empowerment.
Come join a community of over 100 forward thinking activists in the state of Louisiana at RootsCampLA who are consciously building a cross-issue movement of solidarity. Whether your issue is worker's rights, the "suicide" of Victor White III, voting rights, education, women’s rights, transit, racial equality, LGBTQ, healthcare, or housing - if it’s about a more equitable Louisiana, then RootsCampLA is for you.
The idea is to bring together activists of all stripes and have an honest exchange of ideas and sharing of skills. When we learn from one another, we take away new ideas, make new connections, and strengthen our work.
This isn’t your everyday gathering; it’s an “unconference.” Instead of pre-set powerpoints and “expert” panels, participants like you design sessions and decide the program. This doesn’t mean “experts” aren’t in the room. They are — many of them are you. RootsCampLA is about fostering homegrown talent.
