About the Event
The Gamaliel staff and Ntosake trainers welcome you to our annual training event. We
are excited that you have traveled to become a more powerful, who has already braved the
flames of life: flames that could have already destroyed you, but you have survived! We
have been through hell. Our rights are being eroded: our safety threatened; our future
insecure. It would be a dire narrative for us to live into, except this is not an end to our story;
this is the opportunity to write a new narrative and to live into the power raging within us.
You are not a training to get power: you are here to transform the power within you to fight
for your rights, for justice for your community, and a sure future for the welfare of our world.
You can do this because you have already been through the unimaginable flames of racism,
sexism, classism, and you don’t even smell like smoke! Training will help you harness your
power so that when you see a flame, you smile because it is an opportunity to release the
power already within you to demand the change we need to live!
