In More Powerful Together, Jen Gobby adds her voice to the chorus of voices calling for a convergence of struggles, for busting out of single issues silos, for a movement of movement, for joining forces to build the collective power needed to transform systems. In this event we will create space for activists from many different struggles to think together about how we do that, about what barriers stand in our way, and about how we overcome them.
