Understanding and Responding to Microaggressions 
In this interactive workshop we will examine how people from various marginalized groups experience microaggressions (commonplace, often unconscious and unintentional negative slights and insults) and their impact.  We will discuss a variety of ways to address microaggressions, both as the receiver and the by-stander,  Participants will be able to practice a range of practical strategies they can use in a variety of contexts.
