Anti-Racism for Organizers: A workshop
1-4pm, CAB 301

From A.O.R.T.A Collective (Anti-Oppression and Resource Training Alliance) and FORRJ
Whether you are an experienced organizer or are new to organizing, if you want to strengthen your anti-racism framework in the work you do, this workshop is for you. In this interactive workshop, we will deconstruct the ways that systemic white supremacy, racism, and settler colonialism impact our work as organizers with non-profits, collectives, cooperatives, schools (particularly with seminar here at Evergreen), and communities. Together we will share (and learn) tactics, concepts, skills, and language to push us further and unite our struggles for racial justice.

Be the Change: Using Compassionate Listening & Interactive learning to build Global Citizens
3-5pm, A1107

The Compassionate Listening practice offers listening as a healing process and develops a capacity to feel compassion for the ‘other’, to see ourselves in the ‘other’, and to see the ‘other’ in ourselves. Using community problem-solving, participants (called spect-actors) rehearse situations in order to build communication skills and explore alternative behaviors within situations of institutional oppression.
