Transforming Culture by Talking Back to Your Parents

Growing up in multicultural community can mean individuals feel stuck between two worlds of embracing traditions while advocating for progressive and social change. When our communities are under attack or targeted by law enforcement, we instinctively want to protect our families. Even as we work to protect and preserve our cultural traditions, we are challenged with how to transform outdated attitudes and beliefs. Respecting elders is a cultural norm that is passed down through the generations. The respect of elders sometimes includes being silent around sexist, xenophobic, racist, and classist attitudes. How can we talk back to our parents to transform culture? Join us for an interactive workshop where we will share our experiences and best practices for changing culture while navigating tradition. We will also brainstorm to create collective tools to use to continue to improve our communities.
