Facilitate for Freedom: A Facilitation Workshop

  • Portland Bureau of Planning and Sustainability 1900 SW 4th, Room 2500 Portland, OR United States (map)

Facilitating groups towards full member participation and democratic process can be challenging, especially when dealing with dynamics of power and oppression that often marginalize women, people of color, queer, trans, and gender non-conforming folks, people with disabilities, and those with limited access to the cultural cues that come with class privilege. Some simple tools can drastically shift the energy of a meeting, might help you hear new voices, and invite the perspectives of all participants.

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 towards facilitating for justice.
