Justice Movement is a training and educational collective committed to promoting a functional analysis of systemic privilege and oppression. As teachers and practitioners in several fields, we are aware of a strong desire for our organizations and communities to become more inclusive, diverse and affirming. Informed and accountable communities are essential to individual health, survival, and social change. In order to work towards healthy and accountable communities, we must acknowledge and address systemic inequality, power dynamics, and injustice. We need to lift each other up. To support this process, Justice Movement provides tools, trainings and consulting focused on building and applying a working analysis of intersectionality, inclusivity and social justice.
Nat and Danya founded Justice Movement in 2018 to serve as a vehicle for their shared passion of infusing social justice, accountability and transformational learning into the circus and acrobatic community. As the company has grown, so has the audience and they have found that their work has a broad appeal. They have a combined 30+ years of experience facilitating and consulting around issues of diversity, equity, inclusion, grassroots organizing, and community building. They bring a robust mixture of on the ground lived experience and academic rigor. Nat and Danya specialize in intimate, relational learning, building custom courses tailored to specific groups and topics, and a multi-faceted participatory process that feels more like an expansive personal journey than a class.

Aiming for Allyship - 4 week Course
I wish this course was required for anyone participating in movement practices. If we all knew how to relate to each other through the lens of what is taught in this course around privilege, intersectionality, allyship, and holding each other accountable, our community spaces would feel much safer and welcoming. To stand outside of this work, is to stand outside of envisioning spaces of true belonging.
