Led by Donnay Edmund, Community Upstander Coordinator for The Center for Anti-Violence Education (CAE), this workshop will unpack microaggressions that are racist, ageist, transphobic, xenophobic etc. Participants will be asked to dive deep into the oppressive legacies that lead to microaggressions and reflect on how we disrupt these systems in our workplace and everyday lives. We will learn strategies for calling people in, to acknowledge and shift their behavior. The workshop leaders will be available post-workshop for booksellers who would like to address specific concerns.
