If you think in terms of a year, plant a seed; if in terms of ten years, plant trees; if in terms of 100 years, teach the people.
Thanks to Chapter Member Jason Tsai for passing this on.
Jason writes: Application deadline has been extended to this Friday! I count my fellowship time as one of the most significant formative experiences thus far in my life. Not to mention the lifelong friends and skills I gained along the way. If you have any questions, I'd be happy to chat with you!

After the March: Activism Convening Free & Open to the Public
What is it?
Timed approximately one year after the Trump inauguration, the After the March RVA Activism Convening is an effort by the Richmond Peace Education Center to bring together those that are and want to participate in work aimed at achieving equality. The convening will feature workshops, community conversations, and movement building/networking time. The registration below holds more information about the workshops and conversations.
When is it? And Where?
Saturday, February 24th, 2018 at Diversity Richmond (1407 Sherwood Ave) from 12pm to 5:30pm.
It is free and open to the public. However, we are asking you to please register.
Who is it for?
Everyone! Anyone who is (or has) been doing work to better the community and those who are looking to get involved in creating change have a place here.
What will I get out of this?
We hope that you leave After the March with a new or deepened network of folks to work in movement with and with new or deepened "real life" skills. In addition, some of the workshops at After the March will continue to be offered by the Peace Center throughout 2018. The intention behind After the March is to be engaged in the long-term, so this is not a one & done convening.
Childcare and Transportation Assistance Also Available
