Description

In this workshop we will learn the basics of oppression and how it manifests in the outdoors. We will analyze how systemic oppression operates so that we can begin to transform ourselves, our organizations, workplaces, and communities. When systems like white supremacy, patriarchy, classism, homo- and transphobia, ableism, etc. are so ingrained in our society it is an important practice to learn how to stop perpetuating oppression and instead become accomplices in the movement for social justice. We will leave with a more nuanced understanding of these systems, as well as tools and resources to make concrete changes and impacts. This is about improving ourselves to improve the world. Please know that you can't take one workshop and be done with the work. This work is tireless. Peace and justice is a lifetime fight.

Founder, Erin Monahan, and local activist and climber, Lorena Wallace, will be facilitating. This is a FREE event! Donations will be much appreciated and will go towards funding the latest print issue! Hope to see you there!
