Is there a way to change the word I.e. AO to a word that folks would more identify with and takeaway the political issue
Sarah Leone, RESULTS, She/Her
57:11
Words have power to strengthen and diminish the severity of an issue. Anti-Oppression or Oppressor or Agent of Oppression are the terms that are utilized to give a name and descriptor to the individual(s) just like the oppressed or targets of oppression describe those who are oppressed. Changing these terms whitewashes the intent.

I second Ken’s comments, it would be ok to share anonymously of course, as a learning because some volunteers may need more concrete examples to understand what we are dealing with when speaking about oppression. This has helped me when having these discussions with various groups.
Ken Patterson, RESULTS (he/him)
01:08:13
Why are we doing oppression: part of it is that there are historical linkages to the state of poverty in our country and around the world is pretty clear—and if oppression has led to poverty, we want to look at it because ending poverty is our value. The other reason is that people in our network are telling us that they are experiencing oppressive behavior and that it makes them feel like they don’t belong. We want everyone to feel like they belong in RESULTS, don’t we?
