A Series of One-Day Drive-In Workshops for the Higher Education Community
Sponsored by the ACPA Standing Committee for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Awareness (25th Anniversary)
Much like light being broken into its constituent spectral colors, social justice work reflects our values and can polarize our realities. The Prism Initiative brings out our personal responsibility, clarifies diverse lived lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer experiences across race, class, faith, to name a few, and better prepares our collective action towards inclusion.
Join us for an intensive, student affairs focused drive in workshop that incorporates your campus climate, knowledge levels, and action steps. Let's have a discussion that pushes the envelope of a typical LGBT training and move through reclaiming language, sexual diversity, gender advocacy, and building ally coalitions on our campuses. Standing at the intersection of race, class, age, size, faith, sexual identity, gender expression, and other visible and invisible identities, this dialogue focuses on the realities of your regional politics, reframes your resource constraints, and provides a space for planning. Pick up where you may feel stopped, stagnant, frustrated, and maybe even supported and we can build coalitions for inclusive development of organizational work.
A very special thank you to the following campuses for hosting Prism workshops: Tufts University, University of Maryland - College Park, Iowa State University, University of Colorado - Boulder, Georgia Institute of Technology & University of California - San Diego.
