Friday, 2:15 pm to 3:45 pm -- Rm. E-207

As we develop our ability to critically examine and re-write the world, we must also understand our positionality within the colonial project. This session will explore the theories and practices associated with creating communal spaces that seek to address the social, emotional, and cultural needs that emerge from the sometimes painful process of conscientization. Participants (youth activists and adult allies) will leave with an understanding of radical healing and develop implications for their own communities.
