Anti-Oppression Lunch 'n' Learn with Kate MacDonald

by Kate MacDonald

Anti-Oppression & Anti-Racism: In Real-Time.

We will be exploring anti-o, anti-racism concepts and frameworks in a real-time way. Beyond theory, we will talk about how to navigate these ideas out in this really messy, complicated world. Kate Macdonald will be facilitating this conversation but it should also be noted that this is a collective and shared learning space. We can all learn from each other. We will be embarking on this conversation on unceeded, unsurrendered Mi'kmaq territory.

Note: This conversation was recorded, stay tuned for a link to watch!
