The following materials were developed and curated to support and empower individuals and groups to explore issues related to social justice. They designed to be facilitated by anyone who is interested in advancing justice and possesses a solid core of facilitation skills (e.g., familiarity with group dynamics, basic helping skills, effective communication).They are intended for audiences in the early stages of these explorations.

The Discussion Guides are the core of these materials. Each guide is themed and comprises three sections: knowledge, awareness, & skills. They include terminology definitions, processing questions, and reflection prompts - some of which are complemented by group activities.

As knowledge and expertise of the guide content is not required, facilitators are encouraged to be part of the group experience and contribute to the shared learning process. Co-facilitation models are encouraged, especially in instances when potential facilitators are uneasy about serving in such a role.

Generally, these guides were designed for groups of up to 20 people. While designed for group implementation, individual learners can still benefit from much of these materials - particularly the individual action parts included in the skills section of each discussion guide.
