Everywhere we turn, we see the impact of injustice and inequality in the world. Whether this comes in the form of racism, sexism, classism, heterosexism, or any number of other oppressions, it impacts our work, daily lives, families, and communities.
While different forms of oppression manifest differently, their basic frameworks are the same. Each one is composed of ideological, institutional, interpersonal, and internalized components (known as the 4 I’s of Oppression), and each has a long and violent history.
This highly interactive, 2-day workshop will provide participants with a framework for understanding how oppression works, and introduce them to the concepts and vocabulary related to power and privilege in the United States. By learning more about the anatomy of oppression and how it is constructed, we will be able to better recognize it, know more about what is required to stop/undo it, and be more equipped to build a better vision for our communities and ourselves.”
