Event description

Description

Take part in a day of facilitated discussion and practical skills building to gain a better understanding of oppression and ways to stand up for yourself and others when you see it playing out in daily life. This workshop will take a “no blame, no shame” approach to the issues. People of all levels of familiarity with anti-oppression work are welcome.

Explore questions like:

  • What is oppression?
  • What forms of oppression exist?
  • Is there such a thing as “reverse oppression”?
  • What do terms like intersectionality and privilege mean?
  • Where do I fit into all of this?
  • How can I work for change?

This workshop is specifically catered for the Vancouver Vegan Community. We hope that creating greater education around systems of oppression will build a more inclusive, and diverse environment within the vegan activist community.

We want to acknowledge that this event will take place on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded Indigenous territories of the Tsleil-Waututh (səl̓ilwətaɁɬ), Skwxwú7mesh Úxwumixw, S’ólh Téméxw (Stó:lō) and Stz'uminus Nations. As guests to this beautiful Land, we are thankful and consider it a privilege to be able to live and gather here.

The facilitator, Kalamity Hildebrandt, has over 20 years experience facilitating social justice workshops on a wide range of issues in the community. They (Kalamity's pronouns are they/them/their) are the Director of Research and Education at SFPIRG, a social and environmental justice centre located at (but independent from) Simon Fraser University. Kalamity is also co-founder of Fat Panic!, an alliance of people of all sizes who are committed to ending fat oppression and building a world in which no one is taught to hate their own- or any one else's - body, for any reason. They are socially and politically located somewhere in all of this: fat-queer-whitesettlerwithcitizenship-femme-genderqueer-disabled-hearing-psychiatrized-anti-carceral-abusesurvivor-poverty/workingclass-late40’s(!)-intersectional-anti-colonial-anti-capitalist-pro-healing-justice-anarchist.

Accessibility Details

ASL interpretation can be provided - Please let us know if this is a requirement for you to participate fully (Please register and let us know by February 4th)

The event space is wheelchair/scooter accessible with access to an accessible and gender-neutral washroom.

In order to enable people to attend without experiencing hardship, Compass tickets and money for dependent care (this can include childcare, eldercare, etc.) are available upon request. Please email samitamanhas@gmail.com with inquiries.

While we cannot ensure a fully scent-free event in this setting, we’re aiming to create a scent-reduced environment by not bringing additional scents into the space. Exposure to laundry products, colognes, hairspray, and many other scented products can trigger serious health reactions in individuals with asthma, allergies, migraines, and/or chemical sensitivities. We ask that you not wear/ apply/ or bring any scented products into this space. If you do so, we may need to ask you to leave so others can safely stay in the space. If you find yourself being impacted by someone’s use of scented products during the conference, speak with any one of the organizers.
