OUCH! Recognizing & Resisting Microaggressions
Have you ever been in a situation when you knew what someone said was offensive, but didn’t know how to respond?  Have you said something you later learned was hurtful but didn’t understand why?  This workshop will provide context for microaggressions, as well as strategies and practice for addressing them when they occur.
