While we fight identity-based inequalities by trying to make systemic change, we also need to bring anti-oppression principles into daily interactions. How can we actively communicate abstract ideas like “respect” or “openness”? At this workshop, you’ll learn concrete verbal and non-verbal techniques that work immediately to address power differentials within groups and improve one-on-one communication. Whether you are a teacher, student, or activist, you’ll learn how to improve your effectiveness by communicating to others that you value them as human beings, a central task of building strong relationships and equitable communities.

This workshop will take place at the New York Collective of Radical Educators (NYCoRE) 4th Annuel Conference, "El Pueblo Unido," on Saturday, March 16, 2013. Click here for more information about the conference, and to register. Click here for more information about NYCoRE.
