Anti-oppression training on Sunday, May 24th!

CRASS Presents: A Community Anti-Oppression Workshop

Sunday, May 24
Noon-4pm

1050 Selby Avenue, St. Paul (E of Lexington)

Coming up on 9 months after the RNC: most charges have been dropped, relationships have grown (or been strained), and struggles for justice continue.  But WHO is continuing to do this work?   Who is not?  Towards which ends and by which processes are we re-formulating our long-term goals?  For what reasons did we struggle last September in the first place?

At this workshop, a facilitator from Training for Change who has a long history of engaging in revolutionary struggle will help us engage in examining how we work with each other as we strive for our radical visions.  Warning: this workshop will NOT be a place to address individual conflicts, to engage in “oppression Olympics” (CRASS supports olympic resistance!), or to leave feeling our anti-oppression commitment has been completed.  On the other hand, this workshop WILL be a place for confronting issues of privilege, identity and accountability; developing and learning concrete strategies for ally work; and stepping towards the stronger communities we must maintain in order to achieve revolutionary goals of any stripe.

Please plan to attend and bring a friend.  This shit is important because our liberations will always be bound together.

P.S. Below is a short list of background reading for people who are interested.  This reading is in no way a requirement to attending the workshop – just some additional resources from varied voices which CRASS takes no particular stand on.

    Is this training for anyone who’s interested or just active members of CRASS? I’ve come to some of the actions but not the CRASS meetings, but I’m interested in the training.
