As the current political climate, across ecological levels of our professions, continues to yield experiences of disregulation and hostility, the need for psychologists to re-strategize their advocacy and social justice efforts is paramount. This keynote address will begin to examine the critical need supporting strategic initiatives within social justice movements, while providing strategies for multi-issue organizing within professional organizations such as NCSPP.
1. Attendees will be able to identify and discuss at least one historical paradigm of social justice practice within the field of psychology.
2. Attendees will be able to demonstrate one new technique or action that they will use in preserving their social justice work in adverse political climates.
3. Attendees will be able to acknowledge one area of their own cultural privilege (e.g., one domain of their identity) on which they want to continue to work and dismantle.
