Radical Resistance: Uprooting Oppression through Intersectional Climate Justice

This experiential workshop develops insight and tools for actively integrating social justice, collective liberation, and ecological sustainability. We will explore topics of structural oppression, institutional power, white supremacy, patriarchy, and capitalism, within an intersectional, anti-oppression framework. Through various activities we will build cultural competency, lay the groundwork for true solidarity, and investigate the interconnection of anti-oppression and sustainability. This workshop draws from the practices of Joanna Macy’s Work That Reconnects, Generation Waking Up, Deep Culture, and Theatre of the Oppressed.
