Workshop summary

Through a game, a legal case analysis, and group discussion, PowerPlay encourages participants to think critically about the law, discrimination, and marginalization. The workshop introduces equality rights under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms and compares two colonial legal understandings of equality (formal and substantive). It looks at the gap between what the law says and the reality we live in, and opens a discussion about strategies for challenging injustice.

This workshop was designed for Law 12 and Social Justice 12 classrooms but is suitable for other groups of youth.
