Join AORTA (Anti-Oppression Resource and Training Alliance) for a free day-long workshop to practice and build confidence to disrupt harmful dynamics and move toward facilitating for justice.

Portland: Conversation Project | The Hate We Live May 29

We live and work among systems that were built on racism. Even people who believe in and work for racial equity are immersed in a culture that silently supports structural oppression, especially anti-Black racism. What does it mean for us as individuals to live and breathe these values from the time we were born? Join facilitator Tyler White for a conversation that will help participants recognize oppression of all kinds and provide tools to combat hate by calling out the injustices present in everyday life.
