Conflict Support Panel: Engaging With Conflict in Line 3 Resistance

When: Saturday June 23 1-4pm
Where: Redeemer Lutheran Church
1800 Glenwood Ave, Minneapolis

Conflict is a very real part of our movements. It is a
beautiful and complicated thing when people from
different backgrounds, with varying relationships, life
circumstances, and experiences of oppression and
privilege come together to resist a pipeline. This event
explores how we can interact with the dynamics of
conflict and trauma while relating to each other in this
work. The panel consists of people with a diversity of
training and experience around conflict. We hope that
participants will also bring their own experiences to
this discussion. We seek to build capacity with others
working on Line 3 resistance and increase our abilities
to support individuals and groups experiencing
conflict, because supporting conflict is crucial to the
health and longevity of our movements.

When: Saturday June 23rd 9am-noon

The ability to move through conflict together strengthens relationships and defends our movements. Come learn practical skills to help people who are working together engage in difficult conversations about interpersonal values-driven conflict, or experiences of harm.

Together we’ll explore:

  • A theory of conflict-transformative justice-and its use in supporting each other
  • investigating our own biases surrounding conflict
  • providing emotional co-regulation
  • helping people gain clarity to decide on next steps within the constraints of real situations
  • provide scenarios to practice one-on-one support and facilitated conversations
