Pieces of the Path.

Along the Southeast tour this October, Bees have been working with and evolving the material for presentations and workshops surrounding the developing Coal campaign. Folks that we've spoken with have had varying degrees of exposure to the stories we share. An ideal circumstance, as we are still learning from these experiences as well, discovering the ways in which this campaign can be most effective in all spaces.
In places like James Madison University, in Harrisonburg, VA, we were delighted to be surrounded by inspired student activists and educators, while also presenting the story as new material to others. This resulted in some great cross-pollination! (our favorite). 
Other spaces we've visited have included the Virginia Powershift Conference in Blacksburg, VA, an incredible source for contacts and conversations;the ACRe Space, a community and collective operated event space, library and infoshop, in Raleigh, NC; and SONG(Southerners on New Ground), an incredible organization, 'founded in order to advance Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer multi-racial, multi-issued education and organizing capable of combating the Right’s strategies of fragmentation and division.
(so good!)
