Social Change & Our Identities

How do our identities influence how we approach social change?

"Coffee is the atmosphere of knowledge—this atmosphere exists in each cup of coffee."

Félix from Radical Epistemology as Caffeine for Social Change
by Alfredo Ortiz Aragón and Juan Carlos Giles Macedo.

In this session we consider in small groups: how we can value different forms of knowledge, data, truths and reconsider whose realities count. Participants will explore how relational exercises can be used to connect, move past professional personas and reduce hierarchies with our colleagues and communities.
