Our lives are complex, and even more so, our identities. In the important work of social justice, we work towards to unpacking some of the systematic and psychological ways in which racist and unfair power structures apply oppression across all forms of our identities.
What is your experience? You are the expert of your own story. Come prepared to engage in discussion and share ideas on combating all forms of power structures that exist in institutions and in our daily lives which seek to hold us back due to the intersection of our identities. What are the issues? What are the strategies moving forward in the greater struggle for racial and social justice? How can we help our communities and organizations get there?
