Event description

Description

Join Move Forward Staten Island for a follow up to our first Understanding Allyship workshop. Designed for leaders, advocates, new and seasoned activists; this workshop will explore how systems of oppression marginalize individuals of different race, class, gender, ability, sexual orientation, and privilege. We will learn how to empower diverse communities by recognizing intersectional issues and explore methods of responding to bigotry as a victim or an ally. This workshop is designed to help participants move past good intentions to ensure that everyone has a seat at the table, amplify the voices that are marginalized in our community, and be silent when other voices need to be heard.

The workshop will be lead by an experienced facilitator, Robert King Kee. Kee has facilitated Cultural Competency, Team Building, Leadership Development and Conflict Resolution workshops for organizations large and small across the globe for two decades. Kee currently serves as an Adjunct Professor and the Coordinator of Student Leadership Development for the College of Staten Island where he teaches classes on a host of leadership competencies, from Mindful Leadership Development, Conflict Resolution, Community Building, Ethics & Values, Cultural Competency, Diversity/Cross Cultural Competence and Communication Skills.

Register today! The workshop will be limited to the first 40 registrants.

The workshop will be provided based on a sliding scale: $5 for general admission and $15 for those who have a little more means and are able to help Move Forward cover the costs of providing this training. No one will be turned away for an inability to pay. If cost is prohibitive to you, please contact us at info@moveforward.nyc and ask about scholarship opportunities for the Allyship Workshop.
