Experienced trainers utilize popular education and Theatre of the Oppressed techniques to facilitate interactive problem-solving. Action Camp is limited to 30 participants, which creates a trusting environment for people to strategize around topics such as:
+Effective member education on issues related to safe spaces, sexual assault, accessibility, mental health, class issues, and diversity
+Accessible recruitment and retention of members and leaders
+Building more inclusive cultures within our organizations
By networking and sharing with leaders who represent democratically-run communities from campuses across the country, participants leave Action Camp with tools to challenge racism, sexism, homophobia, classism, ableism, & other dimensions of oppression in their communities and themselves.
