We’ve inherited a world plagued with social injustices: income inequality, environmental imbalance, racial profiling, sexism, homophobia, to name a few. Understanding how these complex systems operate, let alone doing something about it, can feel overwhelming.
In this engaging Wednesday Practice Night talk, Shastri Charlene Leung and Caren Ohlson will explore how we’ve all been trained at an early age to participate in this world of inequities and how we can all be untrained. This talk is free and open to all.
