#Woke101

Nov 7 2016 (All day) to Dec 12 2016 (All day)

#Woke101 is a 6-session intensive workshop opportunity during November and December of 2016, offered by the Carl A. Fields Center and the LGBT Center.

The goal of the workshop series is to awaken a diverse array of Princeton University students to the myriad expressions of intra and interracial oppression and to support personal growth around issues of race and racism. Though racial oppression is the central focus of this workshop, its intersections with gender identity/expression and sexuality will also be explored.

The workshop will run two concurrent tracks: 1) one for students of color with a variety of sexualities and genders (facilitated by Melissa Melendez & Ezelle Sanford), and 2) one for white LGBTQIA students (facilitated by Andy Cofino & Jordan Dixon).

The groups will meet separately for the first 4 sessions and together for the last 2, to maximize both individual learning and growth around issues of race, racism and sexuality and to begin building bridges and coalitions across identities. (And yes the sessions will always have some food provided!)

Complete the workshop application by Wednesday, October 19th to join the conversation!
