How to be an Ally: Anti-Oppression 101

January 30, 2018

This is an introductory workshop that engages a wide range of learners in understanding power dynamics, oppression and liberation in a Canadian and global context. The workshop explores the language of social justice, and looks at models for creating more equitable communities. The workshop examines concepts of intersectionality, positionality, privilege and oppression in the Canadian cultural, political and historical contexts. Participants will explore internalized, interpersonal and institutional oppression and explore their roles/identities in relation to others. This workshop uses individual and group activities as well as discussion to apply learnings.

Participants will have access to a plethora of digital and print resources to continue their learning journey beyond the scope of the session.


There is child minding.

Time: 6:00 PM – 8:30 PM
