Workshop Overview

What Can I Do? is positive education for social change. Participants will learn how to engage systems of oppression with compassion, self-examination and positive action.

Topics will include White-bodied privilege and responsibility; transgender and gender spectrum awareness; indigenous rights; the #blacklivesmatter movement; the patriarchy, grace, empathy, connection and hope.

Actionable steps and resources will be provided. Each day will begin and end with a dedication to compassionate and non-violent communication. We welcome and encourage all human beings of any kind to attend.
