You're invited to attend this first workshop in a series of three anti-racism workshops. This 6-hr workshop will create a safe space for difficult conversations about genocide of indigenous people as we come together and commit to ending racism in our climate justice work. The format will be a mix of short presentations of how oppressions (specifically racism) and oppressive systems work and how individual experiences can intersect along axes of different oppressions, small group storytelling (longer times with opportunities for deeper sharing and deep listening), large group sharing (shorter and mostly of highlights from small group discussions), and time for individual creative reflection.
This workshop will focus on Solidarity with Natives. We will examine the idea of indigenous sovereignty and the history of the U.S. and tribal governments; concepts of settler colonialism and genocide (as distinct from racism); removal policies; and environmental Justice as part of de-colonization and restoring sovereignty.
Workshops are offered by/facilitated by: Tara Villalba and the Mangrove Collective.
