4we offer trainings that are designed and facilitated by Black revolutionaries who utilize thorough assessment, bold experimentation, and profound imagination to transform liberation movements from the inside out.
Our training curriculum is developed by the L1 Collective whose vision is to better equip aspiring revolutionaries and allies to shift movement culture. Training participants leave our training containers having further developed their own theories for change and cemented the foundations of their own movement praxes.
Our containers are disruptions from harmful conditioning; spaces in which participants work to unlearn deeply embedded conditioning and build holistic, healthy, and equity oriented outlooks. While participating, individuals and collectives can expect to co-facilitate their own interactive learning and form relationships that grow the movement for universal freedom.
400+1 offers both personalized training for individuals and organizations and a quarterly training series for non-Black allies. While the quarterly trainings are cumulative, allies can jump in at their convenience and move at their own pace. In 2020, training locations will include Puerto Rico, Haiti, Cuba and more.
In each of our trainings we acknowledge that we are all struggling toward an equitable society and that process includes preparing for harm. Each training cohort establishes not just community agreements but also methods to address harm that can occur in community space. We have found these methods fruitful in cultivating true community and coalition bonding.
