Excerpt from the article:
To get a sense of how these OPAWL F4L Fellows will soon change the world, we chatted with Aarti Raghavachari (she/they/he), a recent Fellow graduate, to chat about what they’ve learned from the fellowship and their plans for the future.
“During the F4L program, I expanded upon my facilitation skills by learning the roles and expectations of what healthy facilitation can look like — how to foster a safe space and dialogue with others, as well as how to trust others around you to guide you and have answers you may not have.
I learned about the facets of popular and political education and the importance of centering marginalized people in our social justice dialogues. I learned how to transform our reflection on ourselves into action for our communities, how to commit to radical change and how to challenge any preexisting roles and perspectives to fully liberate ourselves and the members of our communities from the roots of our oppression.”
