Gathering Strength Initiative

The Action Lab’s Gathering Strength Initiative creates vital space for healing, reflection and calm – for organizers, leaders, and social justice artists to cultivate individual and shared well being. As a part of this work, we cultivate practices of personal, institutional and communal well-being and resilience, and explore how such practices can reshape how we build our organizations and how we can envision and embody leadership. Through this work, we are developing a shared commitment to well-being, joy and health – not just as hallmarks of the world we want to create, but as features of the world we create and inhabit now.
