Advocacy and Justice

In Dimensions Advocacy and Justice work our goals are to:

  • Define anti-oppression in the context of social justice leadership and familiarize leaders with related terms, principles, and practices that shape leadership commitments to change.

  • Deepen understanding of systemic issues that contribute to ongoing conditions of oppression in our regional, national, and global communities.

  • Teach skills and strategies for utilizing an anti-oppression lens to pursue justice and social transformation.

  • Assist activists in navigating distinctions between personal and institutional work to support justice, equalize power, and enact systemic change.

We understand that the work of identifying privilege, dismantling systems of oppression, and growing equity in the world around us is ongoing. Dimensions tools support activists in developing their capacities to be refreshed, resourced, and strategically sustained over long-term work. We create learning environments that are compassionate, meaningful, and practical, above all else. Our workshops establish a foundation to develop both nuanced and “big picture” analyses of personal, interpersonal, systemic, and cultural impacts within movement building. Participants are provided with strategies for working from where they stand and are encouraged to pursue shared understanding, collaborative goals, and collective building.
