In this collaborative workshop, participants will explore the impacts of an increasingly divisive legislative landscape on primary prevention education in school-based settings and how to proactively plan to meet these moments through a disaster management lens. The session will open with a brief history of legislative attempts to suppress anti-oppressive education, the intersections of anti-oppression with prevention and social-emotional learning, the ripple effect of violence, and an introduction to disaster management frameworks. Using the Disaster Management Cycle, supplemental handouts, self-reflective journaling, play, and group activities, participants will work together to identify common prevention barriers, build adaptable strategy toolboxes, and begin the development of their primary prevention sustainability plans.
