It's time that we liberate ourselves as BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color). My liberation is your liberation is our liberation.
Liberated is an online experience created for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) to find freedom and community in liberating themselves from oppressive systems. This new training is a result of multiple requests from BIPOC at past trainings who expressed a desire for more race-based affinity spaces focused on healing, learning and networking.
Join us for a four-part cohort series where BIPOC will have an opportunity to commune and converse around topics that aren't often highlighted in the inclusion and equity trainings that we attend. Let's talk about colorism. Let's talk about sexism within racial minority groups. Let's talk about how erasure, anti-blackness, and white supremacy and how these issues show up in ALL of our communities. Let's examine and uproot the ways in which white supremacy is showing up in our personal and professional contexts, and reorient toward liberation. This training draws from Building Bridges' conflict transformation model, and pulls from facilitators' lived experiences as BIPOC individuals.
To attend, you must have completed a Groundwork Session, and filled out an application. Please contact Jenny (event organizer) directly for more information. firstname.lastname@example.org
Please make sure you can attend all four of the dates!

Why a Cohort Model?
We are so excited to offer Liberated in online format and in a cohort model! We believe that meeting together in a group/affinity/caucus of BIPOC for the four sessions together will increase and clarify our will, skill and capacity to engage as liberated leaders for the long haul. The cohort model also is designed to build a community of people that can stay connected in the movement of justice, long after the cohort officially ends.
