Custom Workshops

SFPIRG offers a variety of workshops developed to build or deepen understandings on a variety of topics. Our standard workshops are based around anti-oppression though we can tailor workshops to focus on anti-racism, LGBTQ2S+, liberation, colonialism & anti-colonialism, harm reduction principles, radical accessibility, and other topics. Not sure if we cover a topic you’re interested in? Contact us! If we don’t offer it, we can point you in the right direction.

Their approach has been non-judgmental, respectful, and deeply compassionate – qualities that are essential for building awareness and more inclusive communities.” (Student Engagement & Retention, SFU Student Services)
