The core objectives of the INTERSECT Social Justice Retreat are for participants to:
- understand one's own cultural backgrounds
- listen to the experiences and stories of others
- learn about the roots of specific forms of oppression and privilege
- discover ways to address everyday bias, stereotypes, and discrimination as an ally (or someone who isn’t personally impacted, but who is responsible based on their privilege)
- describe and exemplify ways to create positive change and promote inclusion on campus
- to encourage coalition building between individual students and groups/organizations across differences.
