We are honored to welcome Dean Spade in conversation with activist Taylor Alxndr of Southern Fried, Queer Pride and Smith College Professor, Jina Kim for our 5th annual Building On Our Momentum (BOOM): Community Day,

In this important dialogue, the speakers will discuss the long history of Queer and Trans activism, radical social justice movements organizing for Black liberation and much more as described in Dean Spade's new book, Mutual Aid: Building Solidarity During this Crisis (and the Next).

Mutual aid is the radical act of caring for each other while working to change the world. In his incredible new book, Dean Spade reminds us of the incredible history of social movements that will lead to transformative change. As he notes, this book is about mutual aid: why it is so important, what it looks like, and how to do it. It provides a grassroots theory of mutual aid, describes how mutual aid is a crucial part of powerful movements for social justice, and offers concrete tools for organizing, such as how to work in groups, how to foster a collective decision-making process, how to prevent and address conflict, and how to deal with burnout.
