It doesn’t have to be this way: Transforming Internalized Oppression


A NEW WEBINAR SERIES! JUNE 3rd and June 10th, 2018

It doesn’t have to be this way: Transforming Internalized Oppression

When our oppression becomes internalized, we experience a wide variety of harmful thought patterns that impact not only our self-image but also how we connect and build with others. When we collectively disregard our internalized oppression, it further fuels harm on every scale. In this two part webinar series, Lisa Marie and Fatima will guide a cohort through understanding internalized oppression, recognizing its impacts on ourselves, our relationships, and on institutional and cultural norms.  Participants will learn tools for dismantling this insidious form of oppression, that are based in compassion, creativity, and accountability. Through interactive activities and exercises, we will develop the content for a zine that Lisa Marie and Fatima will compile to share as a resource for ourselves and others in our processes of transforming internalized oppression into connection, art, and healing.

This series is interactive, innovative, and will help participants in their own journeys of healing internalized oppression while providing opportunities to share and build with one another.  This series is BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color, including Mixed people) only.
