Advocacy and Justice

Yavilah and Dove at Women's March

Our Goals:

To define anti oppression in the context of social justice leadership and familiarize leaders with related terms, principles, and practices that shape leadership commitments to change.

To deepen understanding of systemic issues that contribute to ongoing conditions of oppression in our regional, national, and global communities.

To teach skills and strategies for utilizing an anti-oppression lens to pursue justice and social transformation.

To assist activists in navigating distinctions between personal and institutional work to support justice, equalize power, and enact systemic change.


Our Service:

Dimensions Consulting offers consulting, leadership development, coaching, training and team facilitation directed toward the development of an anti-oppression analysis and framework.  Our activities and workshops expand awareness, facilitate assessment, and develop increased accountability in movement building practices.

Developing the Anti-Oppression Lens …

Dimensions consulting supports advocacy and justice groups in meaningfully leveraging anti-oppression values in empowering people and communities, changing systems and navigating the daily work of social justice.   At Dimensions Consulting we believe that the dynamics of power, privilege, oppression, and diversity and the ways that these dynamics affect individuals, communities, organizations, and social change agendas, matter. As consultants, we provide essential tools for building relationships that can support meaningful social justice work in the United States and around the globe.

At Dimensions Consulting we use Anti-Oppression as an adjective to describe the adoption of an active approach toward dismantling multiple systems of oppression simultaneously in our work while caring for our health and inner well-being as activists.  Our consultation is meant to strengthen individual and collective abilities to reflect, discover, strategize and take action from an anti-oppression stance.

At Dimensions Consulting we understand that the work of identifying privilege, dismantling systems of oppression and growing equity in the world around us is ongoing.   Dimension tools support activists in developing their capacities to be refreshed, resourced and strategically sustained over long-term work. Dimensions creates learning environments that are compassionate, meaningful, and practical, above all else.  Our workshops facilitate the ability to develop both nuanced and “big picture” analyses of personal, interpersonal, systemic and cultural impacts within movement building.   Participants are provided with skills and strategies for working from where they stand, while simultaneously being encouraged to seek reciprocity and the potential for shared understanding, shared goals, and shared work.

We invite you to read and familiarize yourself with the dimensions of anti-oppression work that can be explored through our site and through our consultation.  We encourage you, before we meet, to draw some conclusions about what you would like to bring to the table. We look forward to a great conversation!
