The workshop seeks to increase Coalition members understanding of oppression and privilege with the larger goal of assisting us work more effectively towards our goals. We cannot achieve those goals without working cooperatively with the great diversity of people and organizations in our community. The workshop is in response to the ongoing challenges the Coalition faces regarding our white privilege.

The participatory workshop will address:

  1. Welcoming diversity and acknowledging privileges
  2. Learning how our social identity impacts our leadership
  3. Examining our stereotypes and their impact
  4. Understanding other groups and how to be alli​​e​s​​
  5. Deep listening to reach understanding and to make commitments for action
  6. Setting personal and Coalition’s next steps
