Dominant Culture Virtual Workshop

AfroResistance

Date: Sep 16th

Dominant Culture and the individual as it relates to the current moment in history.

This 2.5 hr workshop will illustrate the power of culture on our individual experiences and how they shape how we experience ‘reality’- including our relationships with others and our role in dismantling and/or perpetuating dominant culture.
Are you ready to reflect on your own behavior before trying to impact change externally? Do you explore key questions about dominant culture in your social justice work?
This is a primer on anti-oppression; for this session, race will be centered. We welcome anyone that is committed to personal and collective liberation.

The Workshop:
What is dominant culture and how do we each manifest it in our daily lives? What is our positioning and role in shaping dominant culture?
How does dominant culture impact our day to day lives?
How do we uphold, replicate or challenge dominant culture? How do we challenge ourselves in the fight against racism?

Cost::
Choose what to pay, starting at $35. The true cost of this workshop is about $60/person.
If you are part of an organization, please consider paying above the true cost. The fees for workshops allows us to offer programs like these in other languages free of costs to mostly unpaid organizers in Latin America and the Caribbean that are working hard to make systemic and structural changes in their countries and might not have the funds for these workshops.

The Organizer:
AfroResistance is a Black women-led organization with the mission of educating and organizing for human rights, democracy and racial justice throughout the Americas.

Reviews:
- I really liked the entire session! The way in which it was formatted to establish a foundation and mutual understanding for everyone was great.
- As a woman of color to learn about my personal dominant privileges, being able to reflect how I use them as a tool to oppress others and how I never have had to think it was both eye opening and hard.
- This workshop has made me reflect about all the harm that I have caused to Black people in general, including children.

Facilitators:
