Description/Abstract of your Event: 

Thanks to the Global Action Project's Movement History Timeline Technology, we were able to create an online, interactive timeline of the history of the NYC Tenant Movement. We also created curriculum to help folks teach and facilitate a workshop or session on the history of the tenant movement. The goal for the workshop is to learn together about the history of the tenant movement as well as to leave the workshop feeling confident in facilitating your own workshop or session on the history! We hope the workshop will remind us there is a vast and powerful history that should be accessible to all of us, to honor those who came before us, to inspire us to act and to hold us accountable to our future which is as bright as we make it.
