Conflict Revolution

From Metropolitan Anarchist Coordinating Council
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Conflict Revolution studies and practice self-aware communication skills and conflict support from a revolutionary, anarchist, and abolitionist perspective. Intentional education in these skills has an inherently anarchist-feminist root as it reduces the burden of mediation on those socially expected to be more emotionally intelligent (generally non-men). We aim to develop and share skills needed for communities to resolve their own conflicts through readings, discussions, and practicing existing conflict mediation techniques.

About Us[edit | edit source]

We met regularly from August through December 2017 (a.k.a Season 1) and have been on hiatus since then. Season 2 is set to begin March 28th!

Because we don't meet at a public location, Conflict Revolution is a semi-closed group. If you're interested in joining us, attend a General Assembly or a MACC_Anarchx-Feminist public meeting.

Season 2 - Syllabus & Schedule[edit | edit source]

We'll be meeting every other Wednesday starting March 28th.
