Rooted in Place: Practicing Anti-Oppression, Integrity and Humility for the Long Haul
Date & Time
Tuesday, March 31, 2020, 9:45 AM - 10:45 AM
This interactive session facilitated by Nolizwe (San Francisco) and Erin (Baltimore) models personal and professional practices for utilizing a racial equity lens to acknowledge the lived experience and local context of campus and community partners. Through story-telling, dyad and group sharing, this session will invite participants to reflect on current community engagement practices and hear lessons learned from two different long-term place-based community engagement initiatives. This session is open to all and will provide participants with an understanding of how anti-oppressive practices and values lead to shifts in university-community relations, aims, and partnership efforts over time.
Learning outcomes:
  • Further develop a deeper understanding of value-led community engagement work
  • Foster the space for skill sharing while practicing openness and humility
  • Enhance our collective understanding of anti-oppression and intersectionality
  • Build critical connections among each other
  • Understand the framework necessary for long-term commitment to place and people.
