Tailored for climate activists, with Extinction Rebellion’s Principles and Values at its core, Oppression, Movement-Building and Relationships is one of two experiential workshops. This online workshop, led by Jen Hall, looks at how movements can be divided when oppression goes unaddressed, offering practical tools to heal these divisions. The other workshop, USS 101: Universal Support Skills, led by Lynda Wightman, offers participants a basic toolbox for support mechanisms that build resilient relationships, action capability and long-term activism. Both workshops cover Universal Support Skills and focus on key relationship skills for building a non-hierarchical movement. The workshops are complementary and standalone; participants are strongly encouraged to attend both. This workshop will address the importance of understanding the structural nature of oppressions (such as racism, sexism, classism, ableism, the oppression of young people, gender discrimination, etc.), as well as doing personal healing work – both of which are necessary if we are to work together effectively in a united movement. It will also include skills related to healing and dealing with oppression at personal and community scales. Participants will have the option to join an ongoing support group with opportunity to further develop these skills. In line with XR’s non-hierarchical, regenerative culture, this workshop embodies inclusive approaches that ensure everybody’s voice is heard. Workshop facilitators, Jen Hall and Lynda Wightman, bring decades of experience facilitating peer counseling workshops, meetings and support groups using a framework of inclusive processes and participation. This workshop will be held online using Zoom; details will be emailed upon registration. The organisers can be contacted at XRBMemail@example.com.
