Anti-Oppression facilitators in action this morning

Some of the morning’s participants

OPIRG’s first term Core Values workshops were well attended and created a positive space to explore these important aspects of our work for social justice and environmental integrity.

Using theatre and group discussion, Anti-Oppression facilitators Cat Cayuga and Rosemary Aswani brought out the issues of anti-oppression and power dynamics, and how to become an ally of oppressed people for two dozen students and community members.

The afternoon was two hours on Consensus Decision Making with facilitator Rae Mitchell. The dynamic and egalitarian group decision-making process was explored and examined in rich detail, with participants gaining valuable insight into how to apply consensus in their working groups and in their lives.

We will repeat both workshops in second term, so make sure you are subscribed to our event list so you won’t miss out!
