Making Movements – Week 2: Celebrating Diversity

July 15 @ 9:00 am - July 22 @ 5:00 pm

$150

Xenophobia can be described as the fear or hatred of that which is perceived to be foreign or strange. What role has xenophobia played in creating the systemic inequities we as advocates and nonprofits try and change both in society and in our own organizations? Join us for Week 2 of Making Movements for a dedicated space to critically understand how Xenophobia is operationalized and incorporated in the United States and what that means for us as advocates and organizations serving and empowering immigrant communities. Participants will engage with complex critical questions related to difference and what it means to truly celebrate and cultivate allyship and environments that celebrate diversity and allow it to thrive. Participants will also be connected to local Ventura and Santa Barbara based organizations and grassroots organizers doing work affecting immigrant communities.
*Registration closes the day before each orientation at 1pm

La xenofobia puede describirse como el miedo o el odio a lo que se percibe como extranjero o extraño. ¿Qué papel ha desempeñado la xenofobia en la creación de las desigualdades sistémicas que nosotros, como defensores y organizaciones sin fines de lucro, tratamos de cambiar tanto en la sociedad como en nuestras propias organizaciones? Únase a nosotros en la segunda semana de “Haciendo Movimientos” para un espacio dedicado a entender críticamente cómo la xenofobia es operacionalizada e incorporada en los Estados Unidos y lo que esto significa para nosotros como defensores y organizaciones que sirven y empoderan a las comunidades de inmigrantes. Los participantes se comprometerán con cuestiones críticas complejas relacionadas con la diferencia y lo que significa celebrar y cultivar verdaderamente ser aliados y los entornos que celebran la diversidad y le permiten prosperar. Los participantes también se pondrán en contacto con organizaciones locales de Ventura y Santa Bárbara y con organizadores de base que trabajan con las comunidades de inmigrantes.
