Interrupting Isms: Responding to Micro-aggressions Before They Go Macro
With Morgan FitzPatrick Andrews
Do racism, sexism, ableism and other forms of prejudice play out in the places where we work? Of course they do! But these “isms” are usually unintentional behaviors (sometimes called “micro-aggressions”) taught to us subtly by the world around us. This interactive workshop will identify some common micro-aggressions and practice how we can respond when they arise.

Saturday, July 19, 2pm–4pm
Discussion: Race, Racism & Our Co-op
To build an organization that is as diverse and inclusive as possible, we have to make time to talk about how the values of oppressive systems tend to arise in that organization—and what we can do about it! Mariposa Co-op staff members Clarice Bailey and Laura Smoot co-facilitate this discussion about race, racism, power and privilege. 

Tuesday, July 29, 7pm-8pm
