Relational Uprising is a training, coaching and consulting project that supports inspired activists, and organizers engaged in frontline movement building to cultivate interdependent relational culture. We believe it is time for a new era of social change work in which we bring an intentionally humanizing, relational culture into our lives, organizations, and movements. Before launching as Relational Uprising, the project was incubated with Mark Fairfield, founder of the Leadership Institute at the Relational Center, an innovative Los Angeles-based non-profit dedicated to building capacity for a shift in culture toward one that values empathy, diversity, and interdependence.
