“The Sojourner Truth School for Social Change Leadership prepares social justice leaders and learners to join movement struggles and acquire the skills, analysis, and confidence necessary to organize, educate, and build community to create a better world.  The Truth School offers free classes, currently, all on zoom, to a wide range of participants from many geographies and identities. From the contemplative to the nuts and bolts, Truth School classes speak across movements.

We are committed to amplifying the leadership of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color, who lead all classes, or offer them in bi/multi-racial/cultural teams.  Classes are interactive and accessible.  Relationship-building is at the heart of movement building and this informs the style of our classes.  Classes connect people across issues and identities, help break down silos, and support social justice infrastructure.

The funds from the MNF will be used exclusively to support paying our trainers and workshop hosts.” Shelley Zimbalist, The Sojourner Truth School for Social Change Leadership
