What we're about

This group is for anyone who is interested in coming together to discuss, reflect on, and share their experiences of the effects of oppression on their own lives and/or where they see/have seen the effects of these oppressions happening on other's lives. With meeting and sharing our experiences and ideas with each other, we will form the strong connections and relationships needed in order to move forward together to change society for the better and to help eliminate oppression. Some of the oppressions that may be discussed are (but are not limited to) sexism, racism, classism, adultism, ableism, ageism, and young adult/young people's oppression, and of course--where these all intersect. Meetups will be held once a month and (sometimes more than that depending on the demand) at local venues, such as coffee shops, in and around Cambridge and will follow an open discussion format, keeping in mind the places of power and privilege we each carry as we interact with each other as brilliant, bold, and good human beings in this project! All are welcome and encouraged to attend!

Anti-Oppression Meet up

Online event

• What we'll do Global pandemic, schools reopening, police violence, murders of black people--sky's the limit! So much going on right now, so come in this processing space and connect with like-minded people. We will be going over some basic oppression/intersectionality theory and how and why people get co-opted to perpetuate this really illogical system, then will be dividing up the time in small groups or whole group for active listening and processing time. • What to bring Your brilliant minds, and willingness to listen and learn. • Important to know This is mostly a community building and processing session. There may be some time to share resources, but it is not the focus, nor is it is a space for "problem solving." Zoom link will be shared to those who have RSVP "yes" shortly before the start of the Meetup.
