Tools for Listening When We Disagree
Disagreement is common in movement work as in all aspects of life. It can cement disunity or move us forward to effective strategy and action. It can make us lose our human connection with those we disagree with. In this hands-on workshop we will try out tools for listening more effectively when we disagree. By practicing these tools with fellow organizers we can listen better to those we want to organize. We will practice these tools in the context of care of the environment.

Dear Brooklyn SouthWest Cocounselors,

PSP Memories 2

I've come to realize that while I've had many objective obstacles to writing about my Puerto Rican Socialist Party memories because of work deadlines and other life imperatives, I've also had a lot of resistance, a lot on unaware levels. It occurs to me that the resistance is actually at the heart of the story. The PSP was, other than leaving Cuba, the most formative experience of my life. My five years or so with the Party prepared me for everything else I've done in my life.

PSP Memories

I consider myself very lucky because I've gotten to live in the future several times in my life.Like many immigrants, I've gotten to travel in time and experienced the different centuries and social systems of m countries of origin, Cuba and Puerto Rico, and the US.
