Anti-Racism / Anti-Oppression Training

Hamilton Centre for Civic Inclusion provides Anti-Racism / Anti-Oppression Training to groups to empower them to address oppressive and racist situations and systems they may be challenged by. The training involves frameworks, in-depth modules, and hands-on workshops. Participants are equipped to recognize and address the many shapes and formats of oppression, such as racism, homophobia, transphobia, islamophobia, sexism, patriarchy, ableism, ageism and more. The training acknowledges that power and privilege if not used positively, can be detrimental to the functioning of communities, businesses, groups, and individuals.

Identifying Oppression

Oppression is the use of power to marginalize or disempower an entire social group or category, often while it further provides advantages to those in positions of power. Before challenging and mitigating oppression, it is imperative to identify and understand oppression and the consequences it has on society and individuals.

Systems of Oppression

Systematic barriers, such as policies, procedures, or situations, often create disadvantageous positions for certain groups of people. Understanding the prevalence of these oppressive belief systems is the key to developing equitable outcomes and social solidarity. 

Impacts of Oppression

Certain people experience social and systemic forms of oppression because of their intersecting identities. In order to address oppression and prepare to challenge it directly, it is critical to be able to identify, observe, and acknowledge the actual oppression that individuals and groups are experiencing in their unique contexts.

Addressing Oppression

To address oppression, diverse strategies and tactics are required such as lobbying, online activism, organizing events, and creating policies. Through applied individual and group exercises, HCCI’s anti-oppression and anti-racism training engages participants through case studies and simulations of real-life scenarios.
