    Hosted by Alma Barrera & Marlyn Diaz
    Saturday, Sept 30, 1-3pm

The project focuses on basic health information, resources and healthy living workshops, as well as ensuring that local elected officials are supporting community health.

    The objective of the workshop is to introduce the communities surrounding inner city Los Angeles, including the Elysian Valley, to the concept of grassroots advocacy, specifically regarding health. Participants can expect to learn the difference between a grassroots organization compared to a government organization or private organization. We will explain how Healthy Urban Living will function as a social action organization by forming teams. Once united, people can advocate for and help transform themselves, their families, and their community in order to have a more healthy approach to urban living.

  • How to Have Hard Conversations

    October 4, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
    2425 Glover Pl, Los Angeles, CA 90031, USA

    Hosted by Cecilia Sibony
    $8 Member* / $10 Regular

    Dreading conflict is as natural and inevitable as conflict itself. Who enjoys the pressure on your chest that tends to accompany an escalating conflict? As much as some of us may not like it, when managed constructively and practiced as a skill, conflict can deepen and strengthen even the most challenging relationships. The goal of this two-hour, interactive workshop is to practice basic skills for those first moments of conflict: the moment of trigger. We will share stories of real conflicts you've experienced, identify our own individual triggers, and learn methods to manage them that pave the way for constructive communication. Activity schedule includes: conflict storytelling, presenting triggers and identification of personal triggers, group brainstorm on methods to manage triggers, and role playing conflict stories mindful of trigger and management method.

    Presented by Nicole Kelly

What is the value of our growing network? What resources are needed that we haven’t thought of yet? How else could we be supporting each other?

    Come find out about grant opportunities & other resources that are already available, suggest new ways to use existing resources, including a more multi-use & collaborative workspace, and work towards a more collective future!

  • The 3rd Space: Political Action Workshop

    October 21, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

    The 3rd Space: Political Action Workshop
    Saturday, Oct 21, 1-4pm
    Hosted by Maria Prichard
    Cost: $5 Presale / $10 Door / Free for Warrior and Goddess members

    The 3rd Space Political Action Workshop facilitates communication and visioning to identify a common reality and a way forward politically. The goal of 3rd Space is to give citizens the power to convene and discuss social issues that are important to them without being driven by a Candidate or their agenda. It is a roving town hall that is controlled by citizens, not government officials. This freedom to assemble and share ideas - build consensus or disagree is fundamental to our democracy - in fact, it is where Democracy lives and grows. Come with an open mind and creative ideas for imagining the world you want to live in.

    Maria Prichard is the founder and creator of The 3rd Space Political Action Workshop. The 3rd Space began as a response to the 2016 election outcome during Maria’s second semester of graduate school at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies (MIIS) in Monterey. Now, it has become a social movement. Maria’s background includes a BA in Political Science from USC, 5 years of nonprofit fundraising and development work for Los Angeles-based nonprofits serving at-risk communities, Yoga Teacher Certifications with a focus on trauma and addiction and in December 2017 she will receive her Masters of Public Administration from MIIS. Maria’s work has led her to discover a bridge between the worlds of mindfulness and service, creating unique projects like The 3rd Space.
