Organize BC and Next Up are delighted to host this day-and-a-half Inclusive Movement-Building workshop, facilitated by Natasha Aruliah and Jackie Larkin. They will introduce participants to ideas and practices that can help us build stronger, more inclusive organizations and campaigns that are truly open and relevant to as many people as possible.
The participatory workshop will begin to explore how racism, sexism, homophobia, ableism and other systems of oppression can show up in our social movements, and provide tools to support organizers in building more inclusive movements -- by understanding our own relationships to systems of oppression, and learning practical skills to make spaces more inclusive.
Who is it for?
This workshop is for anyone interested doing social change work.
