Fundamentals of Anti-oppression dives deeper than your typical diversity and inclusion workshop. In this workshop, participants are given the opportunity to explore systemic oppression, social justice, privilege, identity and allyship through a variety of engaging activities. Through self-reflection, community-based inquiry, lessons from history and collaborative problem solving, participants gain the knowledge and skills to view the world through an anti-oppressive lens.
- Understand basic principles of anti-oppression, social justice and systemic inequality
- Dive deeper into frameworks such as intersectionality and equity
- Enhance team relationships through collaborative activities
- Identify solutions for mitigating harm caused by systemic oppression
- Understand and analyze privilege and power dynamics

Our facilitator for this session will be Oakley Ramprashad. Oakley was born in Canada but grew up predominantly in the United States. He spent time in Colorado, New Mexico, New York, and Georgia before coming to live and work on the unceded, stolen, and ancestral lands of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations. His lived experience as a mixed-race East Indian son of queer parents coupled with his education has played a huge role in informing his intersectional critical approach to anti-oppressive work. His education has made him committed to prison abolition and the dismantling of the carceral state, but he is deeply dedicated to combating all forms of systemic oppression.
