Event description

Description

We are so honored to host author and activist Penny Rosenwasser in Boulder for this interactive workshop!

This workshop focuses on empowering ourselves and our work in the world by examining internalized messages from society that can hold us back from having the biggest lives possible and being the most effective activists. These internalized messages can come from our intersecting identities: how we experience sexism, gender oppression, adultism, anti-Semitism, homophobia, racism, classism, and ableism. We’ll share stories, examine victimizing mindsets, envision, forge connection, and celebrate victories. Intertwining self-love with social justice, we’ll bolster our capacity together to create a more just and generous world – to become fearless anti-oppression allies. (Title of workshop taken from a quote by Audre Lorde.)

For Jewish women and to gender-queer/trans folks (gender identities that are targets of misogyny)
All ages 18 and over welcome. Folks with all sorts of relationships to your Jewish identity are welcome! This workshop focuses on empowering ourselves and our work in the world by examining internalized messages from society that can hold us back from being effective activists and having the biggest lives possible.
Fee $36-$72 sliding scale

Some feedback about the workshop:
"Recently my organization brought Penny to do a workshop for women in their 20s and 30s on the topic of working through internalized sexism and antisemitism. We could not have been more pleased with the outcome. The combination of the topic itself plus Penny’s activist fame contributed to a highly sought after event! The workshop itself was magical: Penny’s unique facilitation style allowed time for participants to process what they learned, and the outcome was a group of highly inspired, empowered and better connected women. I definitely recommend bringing Penny in as a speaker or trainer!"
–Talia Cooper, Program Director, May’an, NYC

"You had your finger on the pulse. You led us through the experience of being heartbroken, but also feeling hopeful and connected. It was just what we needed, in terms of our leadership, and we didn’t even know we needed it."
–Noa Grayevsky, Bay Area

"The digging we did in the workshop was fantastic, and I liked the bonding that came as a result. I learned things! Self-reflective things, and things about framing hurt and pain into more constructive energy. This learning is awesome."
–Sarena Sairan, Toronto

"Penny has taken the findings from both her research and decades of feminist activism to create a truly extraordinary experience. Combining feminist insights with thought-provoking exercises, Penny guides participants in reflection that draws on both the heart and the mind. She leads with enormous compassion, guiding participants to reflect, reassess, reconsider and re-dedicate ourselves to working for honest, meaningful change in ourselves and our communities."
–Dr. Sarah Anne Minkin, Bay Area

"I left the workshop feeling really empowered and rejuvenated. It was so nice to hear others voice what I often feel."
–anonymous participant, NYC

"Our workshop was just what I have been seeking. The experience of uncovering my internalized anti-Semitism is painful, intense and challenging. And it’s exactly what I know I need to do to claim my “Jewish voice” in the activism I do. In this visceral workshop I let the feelings swell beyond my throat and into tears and movement and the sweetest hugs and understanding eyes from the others in the room. So good."
–anonymous participant, Bay Area
