January 22, 2015 – Oregon WAND Program
CHALLENGING OPPRESSIVE MOMENTS
What are the lessons from Ferguson and how can white allies ensure that black lives matter? Have you been wondering how to interrupt patterns of racism and be a better ally to help end racial violence?
Because WAND works in many ways to reduce militarism and violence, we have invited organizers from Oregon Student Association to share a training on How to Interrupt Oppressive Moments, geared to folks who are committed to justice for marginalized communities and want to learn how to interrupt in a way that is respectful and supportive of those communities.
