Social Justice Advocacy Skill Building Workshops

On March 3-4, 2023, the Community Coalition’s Race Relations Subcommittee, in partnership with the NAACP, hosted Dr. Joe Manarik to facilitate three Social Justice Advocacy Skill Building Workshops. The workshops invited participants to learn about social identity-based privilege as a process which can affect individual interactions and outcomes. Participants had an opportunity to identify contemporary examples of the advantages available to high-status group members, as well as disadvantages they are able to avoid. The sessions also provided materials and knowledge for understanding how to lead small and large groups in understanding privilege. The last session focused on helping community organizations develop strategies for policy change.
