Part Three: From Self to Systems


Our lives today are steeped in colonial dynamics. Toxic hierarchy, exploitation, and extractive practices have perpetuated an unjust system that reverberates across communities, the economy, and society.

To create a truly equitable society, we must recognize and dismantle the impact of colonialism through a process called decolonization.

Everyone has a role to play in the process of healing — whether you are part of a community that has been historically colonized or reconciling how you have generationally benefited from colonialism, you’ll walk away from this session with tools, strategies, and frameworks to create a more equitable world. 

Tune into the LIVE broadcast on December 9th, 10am PST/1pm EST for Everyday Decolonization: How to Rebalance Power for Equity & Justice in Your Organization with Edgar Villanueva.
