Voices in Action: National Coalition Against Domestic Violence's 18th Annual Conference

I will be presenting a workshop on Co-Conspiratorship: The Key to Culturally Humble Service Provision and what it means through the lens of power, privilege, and oppression.

Deconstructing Oppression: Moving from Ally to Co-Conspirator Workshop

Far too often, the work of dismantling systems of oppression falls onto marginalized communities. What does it actually mean to be supportive? In this interactive workshop, we discuss the skills and tools that move us from standing with the community to taking purposeful action towards dismantling the structures that continue to foster all types of oppression. We’ll talk about moving from being an ally to becoming a co-conspirator and how we can work hand in hand with marginalized groups to build solidarity for change, action, and understanding.

Deconstructing Oppression: Moving from Ally to Co-Conspirator Workshop

Deconstructing Oppression: Moving from Ally to Co-Conspirator Workshop

  • DC Coalition Against Domestic Violence (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Far too often, the work of dismantling systems of oppression falls onto marginalized communities. What does it actually mean to be supportive? In this interactive workshop, we discuss the skills and tools that move us from standing with the community to taking purposeful action towards dismantling the structures that continue to foster all types of oppression.

We’ll talk about moving from being an ally to becoming a co-conspirator and how we can work hand in hand with marginalized groups to build solidarity for change, action, and understanding. A co-conspirator is someone who recognizes the importance of anti-oppression work (for others and themselves). She/he/they own and leverage their privileges to take action to amplify the efforts of (not speak for) marginalized groups in disrupting inequity.

At the same time, we’ll explore the inner work that we absolutely have to do as individuals so that we understand how our own power, privilege, and oppression shows up in this work.

Goals

  • To understand the difference between allyship vs. co-conspiratorship

  • To build familiarity with respectful language and vocabulary to describe oppression and marginalized communities

  • To deepen awareness about how our own privilege and power shows up in our work with marginalized communities

  • To share and strategize actions that we can take as co-conspirators on a personal, community, and institutional level towards dismantling systems of oppression

Who Should Attend?

This workshop is open to everyone (regardless of our identity) who wants to better understand how they can work with marginalized communities to impact change and dismantle systems of oppression. You’ll walk away with 1) an awareness of what it really means to show up and advocate with marginalized groups; 2) a better understanding of when to step back and let others lead; and 3) an ability to move anti-oppression efforts forward in a more mindful and meaningful way.

Light refreshments will be provided; lunch is on your own.
