2019 Year-End Video

2019 marked 10 years of gs. We spent this year running powerful programs and building gs for the long haul. There are many things that we could plan for, and many things that we couldn’t. We are learning from all of it, and new doors are opening.

Entering 2020, with critical elections afoot, gs is staying on course with our Strategic Priorities and paying close attention to what social and climate justice movements need.

Watch our 2019 year-end video.

Get Involved

Volunteer in Oakland, CA on January 29, 2020! Gather with gs staff and other volunteers to prepare thank you cards for the many people who donate to gs and make this work possible. Stipend available upon request.

Be a part of our Get Centered: Grassroots Fundraising Program that will take place in Spring 2020. This will be an opportunity to get centered in action as we practice embodied donor organizing! Participants will be asked to make a donation to gs that is significant to you and aim to bring in at least three additional donations from friends/family or by calling past gs grassroots donor lists. We will provide resources and materials, and create opportunities to come together with one another to practice in community.

Somatics, Trauma, & Resilience Courses

What Is Somatics, Trauma, & Resilience?

Somatics, Trauma, and Resilience courses are designed for politicized healers, organizers, and movement-builders who want to engage in their own healing, learning, and embodied change. In these courses, politicized healers—such as coaches, therapists, and other one-on-one practitioners—will begin or deepen their study and practice of somatics. Organizers and movement builders will be able to turn inward and engage with the impact of trauma and oppression in order to look outward again, renewed, reenergized, and hopeful.

Our Priority Applicants: We prioritize applicants who are a part of, or supporting, movements fighting for freedom from political repression and state violence (including criminalization, militarization, surveillance, policing, etc.) and applicants who are a part of climate justice movements (including just transition, land sovereignty, environmental racism, etc.).

In addition, we welcome applications from politicized healers and other one-on-one practitioners who are looking to effectively support movement leaders and organizations more.
