Leave a comment

Don't Make Me Repeat Myself (PDF) is a facilitator’s guide to a workshop for youth peer trainers. This detailed guide concentrates on workshops around gender based violence within an anti-oppression framework. Created by Metrac (Metropolitan Action Committee on Violence Against Woman and Children), the manual has a great basic agenda, complete with introductions, ice breakers and forming a safer space. It uses community dynamics and personal experiences within the group to introduce anti-oppression concepts, like how to be an ally. The workshop also covers:

What is violence

City politics

Interactive scenarios

Multiple activities
