Event: Organizing for Equity

With important local and federal elections, new administrations, rising economic and social inequality, and a warming climate, change is in the air in 2020. But how do we make sure that change is for the better?


To help build connections and share skills between people across Vanderbilt and Nashville fighting for equity and justice in the workplace, the city, the state, and the country, Graduate Workers United (GWU) is hosting an event called “Organizing for Equity.”

“Organizing for Equity” is a two-part event. In the first hour, a panel of activists and organizers from across Nashville will share their stories, experiences, and knowledge about how to organize for real change. In the second hour, attendees can participate in a variety of 25-minute workshops designed to help you build skills and connections and start “flexing” your organizing muscles. We will have workshops on organizing and accessibility, race, class, mental health, and unionization.

“Organizing for Equity” will be held on March 12th, 2020, from 3 – 5pm in the Vanderbilt Divinity School, room G29 (“The Space”). If you have accessibility requests or questions, e-mail GWU at vandygraduateworkers@gmail.com. To give us a sense of how many people are coming please register here: https://gath.io/MjCymCfW
