Anti-Oppressive Framework Staff Development


The anti-oppressive framework is the method and process by which we understand how systems of oppression such as colonialism, racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, classism, and ableism can result in individual discriminatory actions and structural or systemic inequalities. When we know better, we can do better and many organizations are uplifting cultural flexibility training for support staff who serve marginalized populations.

We center upon universal truths about human strengths to train and mentor the care provider so they are capable of the quality care our communities deserve. We resource the resilience that has always been present in BIPOC and LGBT communities, and we elivate confidence to fortify innate ability to stay curious and optimistic, even in the face of challenges.


We inspire healing from burnout and restore hope in our ability to fortify this next generation. In our seventh year of resourcing professionals who teach, mentor, or advocate for youth we have evolved into a resilient army and we welcome new participants with open arms.
