We are pleased to share with you the beginning of the Righting Relations: Adult Education for Social Change Learning Exchange Sessions for the Southern Ontario Circle! We are hosting a series of four workshops over the course of this year for practitioners of transformative learning for social change with immigrant and refugee adults. Please join us for the first of these sessions on Community Organizing for Social Change, on Friday, April 7th, 2017. This session will explore popular education tools to support effective social change initiatives with the immigrant and refugee communities we work with, promoting active participation in social movement building to shape their own futures.
Please join us April 7th from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm at Social Planning Toronto - 2 Carlton St. Suite 1001.
You are an asset to this conversation!
The Righting Relations Southern Ontario Circle is a growing network of adult educators who are committed to using popular education/transformative learning with immigrant and refugee communities to empower critical reflection and action toward social and economic justice. This exciting journey started in June 2016 when Righting Relations: Adult Education for Social Change hosted a Day-Long Reflection Journey in Toronto with over 60 practitioners of popular education in Southern Ontario to begin the building of this network. We give thanks to the skillful facilitation by Creating Realities on that day, and remember the late Tammy Nielson with fondness and respect.
Between July and November 2016, ten adult educators, harvested the collective wisdom of the Day-Long Reflection Journey and mapped out a year-long learning journey to strengthen our capacity as adult educators working for meaningful social change.
Over the course of this year, the Southern Ontario Circle will design and host four learning exchange sessions and disseminate four podcasts on the following broad themes:
1) Community Organizing for Social Change
3) Healing and Wellness
4) Global Justice, Labour and Human Rights
Through these learning exchange sessions, we hope to promote a province-wide conversation and calls to action on what it means to be an immigrant settler on this land, to understand more deeply the colonial history of migration, the need to build bridges of understanding and solidarity between Immigrant, Refugee and Indigenous communities, the effective route to move towards decolonization and live in right relation on this land, and, among others, the effective way to mobilize our communities while taking care of our health and wellness.
We invite you to join us on this learning journey! Please RSVP for the first learning session on Community Organizing for Social Change by Friday March 31st, 2017 by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
