Anti Oppression Certificate Training (Residents only)

Please note: This training is for residents only (this includes youth). If you are agency staff, kindly attend the Thursday evening Anti Oppression Certificate Training. You must be able to commit to attending the whole workshop in order to receive your certificate. Please log in to the Zoom meeting on time with a valid email address. 

Description: When working around issues of community violence, it’s important to acknowledge
intersecting systems of oppression, such as anti-Black racism, anti-Indigenous racism,
ableism, sexism, classism, homophobia, and others. This training will develop your
awareness of your own social position and present ways to work across differences using
anti-oppression and trauma-informed approaches.
