The YWCA conducts social justice workshops as a catalyst for social change by providing training in understanding and confronting complex social justice issues and our role in dismantling oppression. The aim is to equip participants with the knowledge, skills, and practical tools to help build a more equitable world.
Our workshops place value on what each person brings to the learning environment and use activities that are interactive and accessible to multiple learning styles to advance a shared understanding of complex social issues.
Workshops are generally three-hours long and offered on a weekly basis at various locations throughout Portland (check out individual trainings for location information). These classes are open to the public and can be taken individually or as a series (view package rates).
