This is a report based on the "Spaces for Strategizing and Shared Learning: The Peace and Social Change Workshop" held bythe Women, Peace and Security Program at Columbia University from 21-22 May 2018.  The report was prepared by Mikaela Luttrell-Rowland and Hannah Yore and focuses on the workshop which consisted of a diverse group of activists, practicioners and academics from across the United States. The participants strategised with each other on ways to build bridges across and over a wide scope of social movements and organisations through this intensive workshop.  The key themes discussed at the workshop were:

1. The shrinking spaces for collaborative work amongst frontline organizers within the United States and the undermining of possibilities for such work;

2. The need for increased documentation to showcase and make visible the work they are already doing;

3. The need for solidarity across siloed movements in the face of inequality and limited resources.
