#antioppression

“Bigotry is cutting short innocent lives. Religious discrimination thrives. Homophobia breeds bias. Gender inequality exists. Economic disparities are prevalent. People who are differently abled still struggle for inclusion. Protests are happening worldwide! These are all indications of the work we still have to do to bring about peace and social justice around the globe. During this time of unrest as we’re plagued by shootings, murders, and terrorist threats throughout the world, the American Conference on Diversity continues to work to break down barriers that divide." ~ @AmConfDiversity CEO @ewilliamsriley

This wheel was created by the Women of Color Caucus and Social Justice Task Force of the Virginia Sexual and Domestic Violence Action Alliance. It was created in the tradition of the Power and Control Wheel created by the Domestic Abuse Intervention Programs of Duluth, Minnesota. The Perpetuating Racism Wheel demonstrates how agencies (particularly agencies working to end domestic and sexual violence) use power and control to perpetuate racism. I have been looking for this wheel for years! For a printable version and explanations, the link is in the comments!

"The exploitation of animals by humans is a stunning example of progressive deference to the normalcy of oppression...

📌troppo spesso purtroppo la legalità è questione di potere non di giustizia. E così il rispetto anche della legalità giusta è questione di potere nelle società oppressive. 🎯così riflettendo mi viene da pensare che alcuni organi che rappresentano la comunità professionale degli assistenti sociali non si distinguono da questa regola purtroppo. 📬non sarebbe opportuno che il #cnoas rispettasse le sue stesse regole e quelle legali giuste ed eque e se ne desse di giuste? Perché è troppo facile pensare alle macroingiustizie e fregarmene di quelle quotidiane messe in atto.

It's still a new feeling *every* time I enter a dressing room that I can look at my body and not hate what I see. To be free of body dysmorphia and have entered into a multi-year phase of my weight staying relatively constant. To reconnect to the natural loving of my body that was always there underneath the layers of societal conditioning driven by patriarchal capitalism. Shopping is still overwhelming for me, but I've fallen in love with my body and adorning it in a way that reflects who I am- exhuberant, colorful, multi-layered, changing, bold, intentional, and changing from minute to minute. Here's to the revolutionary act of loving ourselves, as the quote goes, within a world that benefits from our self-doubt. 💜🖤💖

Had an amazing evening with two of my favourite sports people talking fandom and sports culture in #Toronto. We chatted about the good work being done and the work that must be done. And we shared the positives and our love of sport. It is so important to hear @missstaceymay
and @mdblack39 speak on education, diversity and the power of sports in community and for youth. I also plugged the @burnitalldownpod podcast and managed to rant about predominantly white sports media in Toronto. Of course.
Thank you to @newcollectioner and @torontolibrary for hosting us. It was an honour. And thank you for amplifying our messages of all the anti-oppresssion work in our spaces.🏈⚾⚽🙌🏾👊🏽📚

Recently I engaged in an anti-oppressive practice (AOP) activity with 72 other Social Workers. At the beginning of the exercise we were all "equal", lined up at the same starting point. Based on our answers to various questions that explored our life experiences we either had to step forward or backward. At the end of the exercise I found myself at the back of the group, along with a small group of my colleagues (which consisted of a over representation of persons who are black). This exercise reminded me of struggles and hurts that are a part of me, however, don't consume me. I actually entered the exercise thinking I would be one of the more privileged in the room. Funny how resiliency works, isn't it?!? After this exercise I was approached by a colleague who condescendingly said "I can't believe you were at the back of the room". One thing that is common about humanity is everyone has a story, and everyone has a struggle. Presumptions, bias, judgements and oppressive attitudes have no place in the privileged work of helping others. The faster we,as a society, come to recognize this, that we are connected by our humanity, the faster we can get on with loving and caring for each other and dismantle the chains of oppression. .

When any government, or any church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects : This you may not read, this you must not see, this you are forbidden to know — the end result is tyranny and oppression no matter how holy the motives. • Robert A. Heinlein

Spent some time with Nature after two days of intense, emotional anti-racism and anti-oppression facilitation training. Thankful for that training and for the people who were in the room. Thankful to feel both rested and exhausted after my walk. #selfcare #nature #antiracism #antioppression #bowintheclouds
