This Melbourne Campaigners’ Network session looks at a key issue in organising: how do we become aware of oppression and motivated to do something about it, and how do we support others on the same path?
Critical consciousness, or consciousness raising, is a practice for building analysis and awareness of systemic oppression.
In this interactive session Jolene Elberth will draw on community organising theory and her own experience organising undocumented workers in New Orleans. You’ll leave with a greater understanding of critical consciousness techniques and how to apply them in your organising.
MCN sessions are open to campaigners, organisers and activists from all social movements, paid or voluntary. This workshop will be especially useful for organisers working with a membership base or for anyone interested in building critical awareness with others.
