- Zoom virtual event
Asian, Black, Brown, Latinx, Native American, White – where do these uniquely American categories of race come from? How did Irish and Italian immigrants to the US, who were not considered white, acquire whiteness over time? How do racism and its impacts hurt all of us, regardless of race? And how can we begin to imagine ourselves as antiracists, actively working to oppose the policies, behaviors, and beliefs that perpetuate racism? In this workshop, we will examine key concepts in race and racism and learn how racism manifests and functions in our society. Participants will learn to identify dimensions of racism, develop skills needed to interrupt racist harm, and explore how to be anti-racist in daily life. Registration is required; see link below. Learning + Action workshops are limited to 40 participants.
