Anti-Oppression Training


The York Federation of Students has continued its ongoing commitment to human rights and anti-discrimination by offering anti-oppression training to a variety of groups on campus.

What is Anti-O training?

Anti-oppression training allows students to understand power, privilege, and various forms of oppression while defining the diversity of our campus. Anti-Oppression Training, and working under an anti-oppressive framework allows organizations to operate in a fair, equitable and accessible manner.

WHY do anti-o training?

This training also provides participants with skills that can be utilized to identify issues of inequities, inaccessibility and discrimination before they develop into major conflicts and/or disputes for the organization.

Recognizing the success and implications of such training, we have further extended this offer to College Councils and Clubs in order to help elected representatives and members have a greater understanding of diversity, anti-oppression, and equity in order to serve their respective membership more efficiently.

We live in a society where equality exists on paper but not in reality, this is why there will always be a constant struggle for equity and equitable rights and policies.
