Event description

Description

This interactive workshop will focus on how our Gospel Values support human rights and inclusion initiatives using original children's storybooks and songs. It will examine our human interactions that are often "tainted" with identity bias - reinforced by the media and societal representations of race, ethnicity, gender, culture, sexuality, human ability, socio-economics and the intersection of these identities. These biases can be analyzed and eradicated with tenacious critical thinking around the forces such as Patriarchy and Heterosexism, that perpetuate them.

In this context, there will be an analysis on the dynamics that power and privilege can have on clients, communities and the individuals serviced by the organizations, including religious ones. Ultimately, the end goal is to promote love, dignity and compassion for those who are marginalized, increasing our ability to serve.
