Description: This workshop explores radical 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. Care labour, transformative justice, cultures of accountability and interdependence are situated within the context of decolonization and Black liberation at all their intersections. Participants will explore how white supremacy cultures shape movements for resistance and challenge our iterative work of justice.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand the difference between allyship and solidarity
  2. Reflect on meaningful implications of radical solidarity for internal self-reflection, interpersonal dynamics and institutional transformation.
  3. Study and reflect on models for mutual aid, solidarity networks and collective power.
  4. Reflect on practices of interpersonal and institutional accountability.
  5. Reflect on diagnostic tools for assessing anti-racism & anti-oppression work within an organization.
  6. Work to increase competencies to develop a successful and sustainable multi-year strategy to advance equity and deep diversity.

Prerequisites: This is not an introductory workshop. Previous training or working knowledge of anti-racism and anti-oppression is required. Participants will have access to a video recording on foundational concepts, in preparation for the session. (Recording link will be sent in advance to registrants in the email confirmation).
