Calling in Culture: Shifting from “Cancelling” to Connection (Webinar)
November 8 - November 10
Tuesday, November 8-Thursday, November 10, 2022, 10:00am-1:00pm (PT)
Hosted by the Luna Jimenez Institute for Social Transformation. Three common responses to oppressive comments or behaviors are: cancel, distance, or educate. Blocking, unfriending, unfollowing, calling out or cutting off someone feels like standing up for ourselves or our beliefs. In important relationships, we might stay silent but distant and less trusting. Or we might tell them how what they said or did hurt us or is wrong. We might share information, hoping to they’ll learn to think another way—which rarely happens. What if we heard that oppressive comment as a call for help? What if we could offer a space to heal the hurt at the root of the comment? Let’s move beyond shaming, preaching, and teaching as we apply our core listening practice in ways that connect and transform.
Workshop Desired Outcomes:
- Understand why “offensive” comments and behaviors are always oppressive in an unjust society
- Recognize the difference between stopping an oppressive behavior or comment and effectively interrupting oppressive behaviors and comments at their root
- Increase your capacity to stay thoughtfully engaged while meaningfully supporting others to shift attitudes and behaviors
- Experience the power of healing using LJIST’s core listening practice
- Deepen our understanding of LJIST’s core theory of social transformation and its application to ending racism
