All Day


Learn to be a Superhero, Barto Lobby • 7 pm

Have you ever observed someone being bullied or picked on but didn't know what to do? This session is an introduction to becoming an ally, most notably an ally for members of marginalized communities on Central's campus. This session is for everyone or anyone; from those of you who may be confused about how to help someone out without "saying/doing the wrong thing," to those of you who have ever been helped in a way that you didn't exactly find to be helpful. Within this session we will go over terms such as 'microagressions,' 'marginalization.' 'ally,' 'privilege,' 'power,' etc. and give demonstrations/examples of these terms. We will also use art (poetry, music, etc.) as catharsis (artistic expression of emotion) in order to talk about how forms of self-expression allow for self/group healing.
