Workshop: Understanding Oppression

This workshop provides a theoretical and practical understanding of oppressions and their basis in power and control. We will capitalize on participant knowledge to establish a working understanding of oppression and draw on participant interests and roles to equip participants to work more effectively for social justice.

Learning objectives:
* differentiate between interpersonal and institutional expressions of oppression
* understand how impacts of oppression present barriers for DV/IPV/SA survivors and the relevance of intersectionality
* practice skills to interrupt harmful words/behaviors

Presented by Dara Snyder, MSW (YWCA of Greater Portland)
