Event Time and Date

Monday, July 10 2017, 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM
15 Days until this Event

Anti-oppression work must reside in a framework that is accessible, restorative and sustainable over time and space. This workshop will focus on practical ways to apply an anti-oppressive framework to conflict resolution through an intersectional lens in our everyday lives. We will explore power structures, the fluidity of our social location, and the operation of privilege and oppression within our diverse communities. Participants will leave this workshop learning that conflict is inevitable and can be healthy if dealt with properly, with tools to mediate disagreements between team members, increased knowledge of the art of ‘calling in’ instead of ‘calling out’ community members and with a 5 step guide on conflict resolution.
