Join the WCSAP Team in our Racial Equity learning process! We have been working with consultant DonYeta Villavaso Madden and we invite you to join us for a foundational training that will inform our internal agency work. But it is not specific to WCSAP. This is information you can use in your own organization and personal life. 

This foundational capacity building session explores Agent and Targets of Oppression group identities and social position in the United States. Many people have both. These identities and positions intersect impacts our lived experience over our lifetime and predetermines outcomes based on our group identity and social position. In this session we will review the framework of social dominant positional and walk through the historical context of the making of America.  At the end of the session, participants will be able to:

  • Identify their individual agency and social position in American society; 
  • Describe the history and evolution of diversity, equity and inclusion in the community and workplace;
  • Identify opportunities to leverage agency to further racial equity and inclusion.

Priority registration will be given to Office of Crime Victims Advocacy (OCVA) sexual assault services and prevention grantees [and Washington Coalition of Sexual Assault Program (WCSAP) members]. All other registrants will be admitted on a space available basis. Registration is subject to the approval of WCSAP.
