Pathways to Citizenship: Exploring the Bridges & Tunnels that Connect Us to Community.
This session will explore fundamental elements that challenge the well-intentioned agenda of inclusion with an invitation to examine internal belief systems, biases and practices that sustain an imbalance of power. We will discuss the side effects of acting as though full citizenship is possible and plant the idea of growing local leadership, connecting to a national network and/or joining a global movement for social change.
