Learn. Advocate. Be: Caring for Ourselves and Each Other in Social Movement; Trauma, Harm, and Activism

To better prepare members of the Goucher College community to “learn, advocate, be,” the Center for Race, Equity, and Identity (CREI) provides self-led and peer-led learning opportunities to foster participant's exploration of identity development, cultural awareness, and cultural competency.

In this workshop, we will learn about and discuss the roles of harm reduction and trauma-informed care in activist movement. When engaging in activist movement, most of us must make compromises as we ourselves fight to survive within the very power structures we seek to challenge and dismantle. Initiating movement from a place of personal - often generational - disempowerment means that in order to make the work sustainable and survivable, we must first center our own humanity and then endeavor to center the humanity of others – including those we may regard as adversaries in our struggle. This workshop is open only to students.
