Workshop Series by Decibel Audio Visual
Fresh Water Privilege Workshop
Explore the accuracy of Audre Lorde's words, “There is no such thing as a single-issue struggle because we do not live sing-issue lives.” Investigate how your privilege intersects with another individual's oppression. We will discover how our positions within the organizations we work have privileged us, some perhaps more than others.
Become an Ally
Organizational privilege can generate craters among groups and create inequities in the communities we hope to bring to the table. Learn the importance of all for one & one for all. Advocate for people from marginalized groups. An ally takes action to support people outside of their own group.
Celebrate All of Our Differences
Failure to “see race” is a failure to recognize the humanity of other people. Why we don’t instead respect differences instead of citing them as the problem. Participants do not go colorblind. Instead of disabling one of your senses have a wish “I wish race didn’t have an impact on the way people are treated”
