A: Dinner and lunch will be provided. After you register, you will be contacted with your dietary needs. We hope to accommodate all individuals who are kosher, halal, vegan, vegetarian, as well as those who have other dietary restrictions.
Q: What is the purpose of this training?
A: The purpose of this training is to support the ongoing and future anti-oppressive work of students who are interested in facilitating and organizing anti-oppressive events and/or workshops for the CSSW community and beyond. We recognize the efforts of community members who actively work to apply a critical lens to issues of power, privilege and oppression, and we hope to help supply the tools to encourage dialogue. With these trainings, we hope to form a corps of students, faculty, and administrators to promote dialogue on issues of power, privilege, and oppression across barriers: in and outside of the classroom, and in the local communities in which we work and live.
A: If you are interested in an anti-oppressive workshop, but feel as if you do not have the experience or ability to make the commitment required for Unpacking Oppression 201, please look out for the Spring Unpacking Oppression 101 Workshop next semester.
