Social Justice 101: Privilege, Power, & Oppression
Social Justice 101 delves into the action piece of gaining awareness about the world we live in, and how systems and institutions operate differently for marginalized and privileged identities. We will learn about power, privilege, and their resultant oppression, which are key terms and concepts that contribute to a more nuanced understanding of how we relate to one another and our complex intersectional identities.
We will speak about what these three terms look like realized at MRU and the greater Calgary community, and discuss together about how best to take action by using the privilege we have to recenter marginalized people, redistribute our power, and combat institutional oppression.
This is an interactive workshop and relies upon thoughtful, respectful, and mindful participation to create a safer space for everyone to share knowledge and insight.
Social Justice 101: Power, Privilege, and Oppression is the pre-requisite for a number of other workshops offered by Diversity and Human Rights. Please read the descriptions of other workshops carefully for their pre-requisite information!
