June 5th-7th 2019, Emory and Henry College

The theme for the 2019 Biennial Retreat is cultivate.

Cultivate means to foster the growth of a craft and improve skills through labor and care. This retreat will be a time for individuals to nurture their practice, grow in their expertise, and for our community as a whole to come and rejuvenate ourselves in the work to eliminate violence and oppression.
