What: Personal and freely-given relationships are vital for human flourishing, and yet, many people with disabilities and other disenfranchised groups face profound social exclusion.
In this workshop, we ask, “What is stopping us from forming relationships across societal barriers and how can we overcome them?” We will share stories about the power of personal relationships, and explore ways to foster communities of belonging and growth.
Covered in this Workshop:
Stories about the power of personal relationships (featuring selected clips from podcast episodes)
Societal dynamics and assumptions that prevent relationships from existing
How to cultivate communities of belonging and growth
Group discussions and time for networking
Our emcee for the evening will be Devon Ray Hillary. The voice you hear in our podcast trailer and soon to be featured in a full episode.
Note: Do For One is rooted in the ethical tradition of Judeo-Christian beliefs, specifically the inherent worth of all people. Human Rights is a modernized understanding of this value. It is through this tradition that we seek the common good for people of all backgrounds. These beliefs are reflected in our workshops and anyone who is interested in the lives of marginalized people are welcome.
