Workshop

Hi All,
I've been involved in a group through the University of Manitoba called the Centre for Anti Oppression Studies and we are putting on the second workshop in a series.

THe first was last fall called "Becoming an Ally" for individuals in the helping professions (or ministry) that work with people from minority people groups.

On May 8th, we are having the second workshop called: " Impact of Power and Privilege-Understanding Oppression" to look at the experience of people who are not "White" in this society as well as, acknowledging the privilege that being "white" brings in this society and how that privilege and power impacts our relationship with those we are trying to help and the way we help (or harm) because of it.

I would encourage anyone who is working with people from minority people groups to attend. THere are two speakers coming from the States as well as a panel made up of people from organizations and communities in Winnipeg. There will also be a small group discussion time.
