Saturday 24th February @ 10:30 am – 4:00 pm
The Securitisation of Health group continues to grow, and we’re preparing for a strong year of continued resistance to the Prevent Duty and campaigning for an end to the duty in the NHS.
As part of this we are holding two in-person training days for group members (new and longstanding) to support the development of your campaigning and spokesperson skills. Information on session two can be found here.
Session 1: Organising-centred campaigning and 1-1 conversations
Co-facilitated by Medact’s Movement Organiser Kate Bernard, this session will define organising-centered campaigning and break down the methodology and value of having 1-1 conversations. We’ll collectively explore strategic and anti-oppressive approaches to organising and building-power, and take time to practice some of the necessary skills for a strong campaign. If you’d like to attend, please register by completing this google form.
About the group
Through research and campaigns, the Securitisation of Health Group aims to shift understandings of ‘security’, from typically “hard” measures (border enforcement, a punitive criminal justice system, counter-terror measures) and advocate for collective and human security, health and wellbeing.
