This workshop explores solidarity through power sharing, mutual aid, and transformative justice through the lens of anti-racism.

About this event

*This is a fundraiser in support of the Sudanese people's revolutionary efforts, connecting the global struggle for Black life.

This virtual workshop explores solidarity through power sharing, mutual aid and risk taking through the practices of organizers, scholars, and everyday people in resistance to injustice. Situated within an intersectional praxis, the session challenges the mainstream understandings of “allyship” and dares to imagine an intersectional approach towards a collective future. The workshop will invite participants to reflect on effective models for solidarity in community and organizational contexts. Iterative mutual aid, crisis intervention, and transformative justice practices and case studies are explored within small groups.

NB: This is not an introductory anti-oppression/anti-racism workshop and should be attended by those who are familiar with the language & frameworks of social justice.

About the Fundraiser:

Healing As One is a grassroots youth group based in the Regent Park community. Our mission is to open dialogue, pave understanding and start healing from the many pains/issues in communities lives and personal lives. Our Team is composed of members who experienced the challenges associated with growing up disconnected from the community. With little mentorship and opportunities for mentorship, as well as facing the negative influences of poverty in a crime-driven neighbourhood - these members are fit to guide the youth in the right direction in order for them to lead a better life for themselves.

Our organization has hosted a variety of events on mental health training, financial literacy workshops, and advocacy to uplift and empower low-income youth in Regent Park. We have provided tools and resources to increase the capacity for low-income youth to respond to crises in their lives for them to thrive in their physical and mental health which include employment, food sharing programs, and poverty relief programs. Through mentorship, we offer organizing skills, resources, political education, funding and recreational programming to harness the vitality, creativity, and power of low-income youth in Regent Park. We intend to transform the Regent Park community with a leadership style that is led by the youth for the youth. Low-income youth in Regent Park steer and shape the entire programming within the organization and we act as a support system to actualize, resource and mentor their ideas into tangible programs as well as nurture their growth as agents of change and leadership in their community.
