Conversation Project: What Does it Mean to Be Good?

Exploring Morality in the Midst of Structural Oppression

May 21, 2019 | Noon | Portland State University - Women's Resource Center

1802 SW 10th Ave., Portland OR 97201

Most of us believe we are good people. But if we are all good people, with little room for fallibility, who are the people responsible for supporting structural oppression like racism, sexism, and heterosexism? If we hope to be “good,” what are our moral responsibilities in a society of privilege, power, and oppression? Join facilitator Brittany Wake in a discussion that explores the values associated with how we come to establish ourselves as good people and what that means for our potential complicity in perpetuating marginalization.
