Description

We would like to a host a space specifically for POC/indigenous/native folks that attended the 'Decolonizing Our Activism' workshop, but open to all POC.

This discussion is a safer space specifically for POC/indigneous/native folks.

We feel that there is a lot more to be said and discussed after opening those discussions at the workshop. Discussing things that came up for us in our experiences, as well as hoping to bring about suggestions and connections to help us actively decolonize our work.

To help kick off our discussion and give us something to base off of we will be discussing Audre Lorde's 'The Master's Tools Will Never Dismantle the Master's House'. We would like to send this to you with the chance that you might read it before anf come with some ideas. But we understand if that doesn't happen so we will have printed copies. If you are interested in reading it beforehand please message us so we can send you one!

Looking forward to talking with you all!
