Harness the energy of money to be an effective changemaker

You have a vision for the world. Take action with money to bring it to life.

What is a changemaker?

A changemaker is anyone committed to creating a world where everyone is supported 100% and no one is left out; a world that is queer, feminist, anti-racist, and life-sustaining.

What is this workshop?

This is a skill building workshop for seeing your next step in taking action in regards to money.

We’re going to be looking at how money, wealth, and class create individual experiences of isolation, overwhelm, scarcity and comparison and how to get “unstuck” around taking meaningful action with money that aligns with your values.

Wednesday, February 10th, 4-6pm PT/7-9pm ET

What you will get out of this workshop:
Historical context of racialized, gendered capitalism and the current state of wealth inequality in the United StatesBridging the gap between having social values of racial and economic justice and taking action in regards to moneyCompassionate space to observe your relationship with moneyIntroduction to tools and skills to clarify your values and what has meaning for you and focus your attention on the results you want See your next authentic step in a community of fellow changemakers
This is for you if:
You are dedicated to building a racially and economically just worldYou are curious how your internal dialogue around money may be stopping you from doing what you really want to do (ex: starting a business, career change, giving your salary or inherited wealth to justice movements)
You may leave with clarity to do one of the following:
Make a budgetAsk to be paid more for your timeDedicate a percentage of your income to social justice giving or mutual aid

This workshop is a sliding scale. Consider paying the tier where one or more attributes apply and is a stretch but not a hardship.

The facilitators are redistributing 100% of proceeds from this event to HotelnotGraves, a project of The Village and East Oakland Collective in Oakland, CA that is housing at risk Black elders, veterans, and families during the pandemic while building power within their community to demand action from the City of Oakland.
$50 if you are comfortably able to meet your basic needs, own a newer car and/or a home or rent a higher end property, have access to financial savings, or have reliable work or do not need to work to meet your needs$30 if you sometimes stress about meeting basic needs but still regularly achieve them, can travel every couple/few years without burden, or have some debt but it does not prevent access to basic needs/wants$10 if you are unemployed or have unstable employment but are still able to meet basic needs, have little or no access to savings or financial support from family, or have higher debt that requires some sacrifices on needs/wants$0 if you struggle to meet your basic needs and paying would be a significant hardship. Priority is given to folks who identify as Black, Indigenous, and/or People of Color, trans women and trans femmes, people raised working class or poor, and people with disabilities

About your facilitators

I am a white, queer, professional class woman and an organizer, coach, and advisor for social justice and progressive electoral giving. Without the support of groups like Resource Generation and my coaching community, I would not have taken the courageous look at my own access to resources and move them in alignment with my vision for a racially and economically just world. I’m thrilled to be able to support others to compassionately look at stories around money, and to move beyond them and take action in alignment with values like being generous, courageous, bold, and thoughtful.

Jordan: I am a coach, facilitator, anti-racist organizer, anti-capitalist, and an entrepreneur. I started my business about a year ago and many times have had to look at where my inner conversations about money and value were getting in my way when it came to building a business centered around supporting people that also supported me. Without the support and wisdom of my coaching community I would still be stuck freaking out about budgeting and undercharging for my services. I am thrilled to be able to support more folks who are committed to our collective liberation to observe their worries about money in order to move beyond them and make the impact they are here to make.
