Reflections on organising - Wednesday 17 February 2021 at 7pm-9pm
There are many different approaches to changing the world for the better, and organising involves a vast range of skills. It is unlikely that any individual organiser is an expert in all of these skills, but we can learn from others who have been successful.
The Ella Baker School’s reflections on organising series brings together great change makers and asks them to share their insights.
On February 17th, we have a great panel, with:
- Peter Tatchell, who helped organise the UK’s first Gay Pride march in 1972, was a leading member of ‘Outrage’ a non-violent direct action group that challenged politicians who were privately gay, while supporting homophobic legislation in public, and fought the notorious ‘Section 28’ legislation that prohibited teachers from confronting homophobia in the classroom.
- Hannah Taylor, an interfaith and LGBTQ organiser, whose focus is on building positive, respectful and effective internal cultures within campaigning organisations (something that is far too often overlooked) and is currently working for AKT a charity supporting young homeless LGBTQ people.
- And Ian Manborde a long-term trade union organiser and educator, who is currently the Equalities organiser for Equity the trade union for the performing arts and other creative workers
We will be using their experiences and insights to begin a discussion about how we can ‘get to win’ a little more often.
