Equity 201 Workshops

Description

Our 201 Racial Equity Workshop Series is perfect for those who want to dive a little deeper. See workshop descriptions below. 

What is White Supremacy Culture?: It is often hard to talk about race because white culture values certain ways of knowing and not others, and assigns a higher value to some ways of behaving than others. Because these ideas have been maintained over a long period of time, it is sometimes hard for people to notice that this culture is based in whiteness. What are the characteristic of white supremacy culture – and what do we do once we’ve recognized this?

History and Socialization of Oppression: This workshop looks at how we have been socialized to play certain roles within the systems of oppression that are deeply rooted in American culture, and how we help maintain oppressive systems. Armed with this information, what would it look like to break out of the traditional responses to these systems?

Advocacy in Action: This workshop is for those who want to see systemic change in their locale, their institution, or their sector, but don’t know where or how to start. Participants will learn foundational understandings, tools and tactics for analyzing the systemic power operating in their context and activating people power toward systemic change.

Registration closes at noon the day before each workshop. Participants will be emailed the Zoom link after registration closes.
