This workshop has two parts. We encourage participants to register for Part 2 here

Conflict is a natural part of any interpersonal dynamic, including in workplaces or organizing groups. Conflict has the potential to deepen our relationships and can transform our organizing spaces into sites where there is room for creativity to flourish, especially when there is a  collective committment to listening and growing together . When there is a supportive and accointable container for conflict, where differing perspectives can be fully heard and witnessed,   it is possible to use conflict as an opportunity to help us identify and transform unspoken power dynamics, or to highlight particular needs that might not be otherwise addressed in our collective endevours. In this workshop participants will be guided through a range of activities intended to increase their ability to sit with the discomfort of conflict. We will also learn to assess our organizations or groups' ability to tolerate conflict. We will explore how intersectionality and power dynamics influence conflict in the context of settler colonialism, white supremacist capitalist patriarchy, and other forms of oppression. 

 
Part One: In this workshop participants we will explore how intersectionality and power dynamics influence conflict in the context of settler colonialism, white supremacist capitalist patriarchy, and other forms of oppression. Using this theoretical basis of understanding we will explore concepts of transforming conflict drawing from healing justice and transformative justice perspectives. 

Accessibility: This is a wheelchair accessible location. Subway tokens available to attendees by request. 

Trainer:
 Tracey Jastinder Mann is a social worker who is committed to collective liberation through supporting individual and group healing. Tracey's work is guided by trauma informed practices  rooted in intersectional feminism. As a community organizer she has organized around a wide variety of issues including migrant justice, indigenous sovereignty, LGBTTQIA safety, prison abolition,  environmental justice, and bring transformative justice practices to organizing spaces.
