Fighting the Systems: Destabilizing Systemic Oppression in Our Co-ops - NASCO Institute

Session materials from “Fighting the Systems: Destabilizing Systemic Oppression in Our Co-ops,” presented by Autumn Brown and Marc Mascarenhas-Swan at NASCO Institute 2016.


In this training, we'll develop shared language and a deeper understanding of how systemic oppression operates so that we can better understand how to transform our housing cooperatives. Together we'll map out what it looks like when systems like white supremacy, patriarchy, classism, homo & trans phobia, ableism, etc influence and affect our day-to-day operations as well as organizational policies and practices. Participants will leave with resources and action steps to make concrete changes that help to break down these systems and build stronger, more resilient cooperatives. This is a two-part session. Attendance during both sessions is required.
