Description

This will be the 3rd time I have offered this learning opportunity, now reaching over 200 people. This workshop will provide an overview of microaggressions and situate them within our soci0-historical context. Participants will use a unique tool to practice interrupting them when they are said, and consider how to set the conditions to prevent microaggressions. Our learning is designed for educators, non profit folks, as well as people in the private sector. Come solo or with your whole crew. You will get a chance to build community with folks from across the country, who are committed to reflection and action.
