2. to understand this reality by analyzing it and exploring the root causes of problems; and
3. to act in order to change this reality.
Framed as a class, race, gender power analysis for decolonizing the mind and self-empowering oppressed communities in struggle. This one day workshop is designed for community organizers as well as educators and labor, political and solidarity activists. We will be sharing transformative tools for self liberation
We will look at Power and Oppression; to develop a basic understanding of the tools to plan and implement effective strategies for social action for groups and communities. We recommend if you are apart of a new and developing community group, as many members of this group build together with facilitators committed and trained to Popular Educators and fellow social justice activists.
