Helping change-makers change

We support client-partners to transform their internal cultures and structures to build effective social change strategies. We also do work within our Dragonfly team to ensure we are living into our values. This is how we contribute to a resilient multiracial, cross-class, multi-issue social justice movement ecosystem with the power to build toward collective liberation.

Announcing Dragonfly Clinics on Equity

Join us to explore foundational questions about how to do the challenging and sometimes messy work of changing our organizations in creative yet practical ways. Each clinic will bring together a learning community interested in exploring how to become better equipped with tools to build equitable organizational cultures and systems.

Our workshop series will cover the following topics:

  1. Decision-Making Models: Letting go of the false binary between hierarchy and flat organizations (June 26, 2024)

  2. Exploring Anti-Racist Performance Management Competencies (September, date TBD)

  3. Bringing Your Full, Authentic BIPOC Self to Work (October, date TBD)

  4. Preparing to Give and Receive Difficult Feedback (November, date TBD)

  5. Toward Practicing Anti-Racism: A framework for building multiracial organizations (2025)


Good News

Our very own Rebecca Subar's book, When to Talk and When to Fight: The Strategic Choice between Dialogue and Resistance (PM Press, 2021), is a brilliant new way of talking about how we change the world. The book echoes Dragonfly's approach to changemaking.

Dragonfly collaboration with Mariame Kaba

In partnership with Mariame Kaba and Interrupting Criminalization, we developed a framework for conflict transformation in movement-building groups called In It Together. Explore the tools and resources that support the use of human-centered, non-punitive accountability practices in movement spaces.

Land Acknowledgement

We live and work in Lenapehoking, on the unceded land of the Lenape people. We acknowledge the Lenape community, their elders both past and present, as well as future generations. Dragonfly Partners also acknowledges that it was founded upon exclusions and erasures of many Indigenous peoples, including those on whose land we are located. This acknowledgement demonstrates a commitment to beginning the process of working to dismantle the ongoing legacies of settler colonialism.
