Event description

Description

H​ow ​can we embed ​anti-racist practise at the core of the movement for climate justice and economic justice​?

What privileged positions do we hold and how can we utilise our power to address injustice?

How can we support people that face oppression we have not experienced?

As part of our allyship trainings series, Leeds Tidal have invited The Collective Liberation back to Leeds to run an indepth training on 'Power, Privilage and Anti-Racist Practice'.

In this workshop, participants will explore their relationship to privilege and learn about how racism functions in the UK. You will leave equipped with strategies to support people of colour experiencing racism and ways to work with white people to dismantle racism in your community. The workshop is experiential, comprised of a variety of group exerci​ses, discussion circles and active listening to explore this material with a compassionate and sensitive approach. We acknowledge that racism and other forms of oppression are often internalised in the body and link to strong emotions such as anger, guilt and shame. We provide a safe space to explore these emotions if they arise.

We invite you to participate in a culture of unlearning, sharing, “calling in” and kindness. The workshop is open to people of all racial backgrounds.

The training will be delivered by Camille Barton, Founding Director of the Collective Liberation Project. Camille has worked with clients including Sisters Uncut, SOAS, Sussex University and the Labour Party.
