Deconstructing Democracies: Bringing a Liberation Framework to Group Processes and Decisions

iLana Morris
Community/Fred Finch Youth Center
Saturday, 2:15 pm to 3:45 pm -- Rm. E-254

Movements, organizations and groups all utilize a number of decision-making processes to achieve (or not achieve) “democratic order.” This workshop will explore the ways that racism, sexism, ableism and all forms of oppression are re-manifested and recreated through our participation within a variety of decision-making processes and structures. Regardless of a group’s structure, our social conditioning determines whose voices are heard, what participation styles are privileged, and ultimately, how dollars and resources are distributed. Presenter will facilitate discussion and offer decision-making tools for anti-racist participation, equity and social justice.
