Workshop C: Fighting for Belonging – How to Tell Stories and Build Campaigns for Migrant Justice Shifting the Political Landscape

Sujin J. Noël & Masha Burina (Leading Change Network) meet Christina Antonakos-Wallace, Olga Gerstenberger, Miman Jasarovski & Tania Mattos (With Wings & Roots).

Explore the power of storytelling in activism: Understand how narratives build individual and collective power and learn to tell compelling stories of Self, Us, and Now to counter anti-migrant rhetoric and build movements for belonging. We will share frameworks from the Leading Change Network and experiences With Wings and Roots in cultural organizing, filmmaking and campaigns for migrant and racial justice. Through presentations, group discussions, and practical exercises, discover storytelling techniques that foster alliances and build power in this urgent political moment.

The Leading Change Network (LCN) is a membership-based organization that focuses on supporting and building leadership capacity for effective community organizing through advancing the framework, giving access to knowledge, coaching campaigns, workshops, support seeding hubs globally, and by convening a community of practice. Members are organizations, leaders, organizers, researchers, educators, practitioners and institutions from 75 different countries who consolidate, grow and sustain our people power for a more just, democratic, and sustainable world.

With Wings and Roots is a multidisciplinary initiative of media makers, activists, scholars, educators, and cultural organizers working in the US and Europe. We work together to reframe migration debates and advocate for just migration policies through storytelling, community organizing, and creative interventions.
