AORTA: Challenging Oppression, Embracing Inclusivity, the Co-op Way

The Anti-Oppression and Resource Training Alliance (AORTA) is a worker-owned cooperative based in the US. As their title suggests, they work as consultants and facilitators, providing an intersectional approach to workshops, training, and planning for workspaces and organizations looking to fight oppression in their communities.

In this episode we talk to Anisha Desai and Jenna Peters-Golden, two incredible leaders in their own communities, who now help others deal with difficult conversations surrounding power and privilege, and facilitate a deeper understanding of underlying systemic issues beneath it all. They change people’s lives on the daily, and here they talk about what that’s like, how they got here, and what makes AORTA such a special place to now be.
