Building Internal Solidarity: The Movement, Conflict, and You

  1. Increase the power of the Movement by building unity in our organizations through understanding conflict and our reactions to conflict.
  2. Understand that conflict is neither good nor bad – contradiction is an important transformative force that should be named, harnessed, and struggled over in order to build unity and increase understanding.
  3. Identify common sources of conflict: internal (perceptions stemming from one’s own interpretations and experiences), structural, ideological as well as tools to de-escalate conflict.
