Lateral Violence Workshop
Lateral Violence is a pattern of behaviour that has its roots in a minority group's experience of racism and oppression. Lateral violence is directed other members of the group, and includes many things: gossip, put downs, backstabbing, bullying, undermining, blaming, shaming. This project will see 6-8 Yukon youth hired and mentored to develop a workshop with the goal of exposing and reducing lateral violence. These youth will then deliver the workshop to other youth in the community.
