The second general workshop was this Thursday. We started the workshop with an ice breaker which was lead by Gaby and Allison. The ice breaker was “Who has the Power?”. Basically, whoever talked first had the power. Afterwards, Bernice took the stage and presented about notable Filipino Women and opened up a discussion about a Filipino’s place in the household and the spelling of women as womyn. Later, a guest speaker from GABRIELA talked about her organization and their aspirations in life. A video was then showed which was about Filipino women in the Philippines and their revolution. AAAAAND then it was the CoPoCo’s turn. JR and Kwiteen transitioned with an ice breaker on privilege. From their seat, general members would have to throw a crumpled up paper ball into a recycling bin which was in front. The lesson of this activity that even if you’re in the way way back(meaning you have the least privilege), you should still try to succeed. Plus, the chairs had wheels so members had the option of rolling to the front and would still be in their seat. Later, we formed a circle and talked more about privilege and if we are privileged or not For the next activity, we formed groups of 5-6 and everyone was handed a Popsicle stick. On the Popsicle stick, we wrote down an obstacle that was in our way. Afterwards, everyone would say their obstacle aloud, if they were comfortable, and then breaking the Popsicle stick.
