Facilitating within a PAR Framework

As we know, facilitation can open a space or shut it down. Whether at a meeting or discussion or in a classroom, how we facilitate is a critical part of, and integral to our organizing for justice. The more we think intentionally about our role as facilitators in different contexts, the more we can create the kinds of liberating spaces that help facilitate the meaningful organizing and spaces of reflection and analysis that we strive for.

PARCEO’s facilitator training on August 26th was a time of sharing and learning together among leaders and organizers within the many groups that participated.

Thanks to El Museo for once again opening their warm space to PARCEO! And to Regeneracion for their nurturing childcare. And to all the groups who shared their wisdom and knowledge with one another.

Here are some photos from our “Facilitators training through the lens of PAR” with a number of wonderful collaborating groups–La Union, Parent leadership Project, El Museo del Barrio, Brooklyn Movement Center, an Muslim Consultative Network.
