Oppression, Movement Building, and Our Relationships as Activists

We are members of XR looking at how movements can be divided when oppression goes unaddressed, offering practical tools to heal these divisions which affect our relationships as activists.

This workshop will address the importance of understanding the structural nature of oppressions (such as racism, sexism, classism, ableism, the oppression of young people, ...), as well as doing personal healing work – both of which are necessary if we are to work together effectively in a united movement.

Logistics An online interactive workshop, please only book if you think you can attend for the full time of 2pm – 5pm EST. We've experienced large numbers of people registering for this workshop and not turning up, this prevents others from registering and attending because the workshop is sold out. So we ask you to only register if you can attend, and cancel your ticket if you find you can't make it.

We will start at 2pm promptly. Please arrive 15 minutes early, so that we can help you with any issues you might have with Zoom. Entry to the workshop will close shortly after 2pm because of the structure of the workshop and group work.

This workshop is interactive so it's useful if each participant can log in on a separate device, and has their video switched on. Note that logging in using a mobile phone is less than ideal because they don't tend to allow you to use gallery view where you can see everyone in the group at the same time.

Because we will be breaking out into pairs for timed 'listening exchanges' it will be very helpful if you can bring a timer to the workshop, e.g. you can use the timer app on a mobile phone (use a spare mobile if you are using your mobile for the Zoom call).
