Many want to be a positive voice for change, yet some remain afraid to make a mistake or look foolish. Join us for a candid discussion on how we can use privilege for good. The Filipino word bayanihan translates to English as "the spirit of communal unity, work, and cooperation to achieve a particular goal." Learn to identify strategies and tactics to both personally and professionally disrupt the cycle of oppression and strive towards justice. To disrupt biases and identify problems that privileges create in the way we relate to one another, you will use a Critical Participatory Action framework to discover how biases create unjust environments. After using videos, blogs, and our personal stories to identify these issues, as a community we will identify ways to create more just and equitable environments through intentional dialogues about how to be better allies.
