Although recent events across the United States have prompted a fresh look at racism in America and around the world, racism has a long, entrenched history that has permeated every aspect of our lives, from the systems that manifest in our communities, to the ideas, language and beliefs that we have as individuals. This means that we have to constantly (and consciously) WORK at becoming antiracist, and to acknowledge that the process will not end until we can truly do the hard work of changing and dismantling the systems that perpetuate racism - personally and in our communities. If you are interested in making a commitment to antiracism, but you don't know where to start, this two-part webinar is a great start for your antiracist journey. Part lecture and part activities, this interactive workshop provides a hands-on opportunity for learning and reflection, and is intentionally co-lead by an instructor of color and a white instructor.
· Part I sets the foundation for our discussion, as we consider the meaning of becoming antiracist, and reflect upon why we as a global community have arrived at this current moment. We explore together why race can be a difficult, yet necessary conversation for all of us to have, and to workshop some ways in which to meaningfully have these conversations about race.
· Part II builds upon our learning, setting the stage for the steps we need to take to make conscious change, which will transform our knowledge into action. We put the conversations so far into the language we can use to continue to interrogate the topic of racism and antiracism, and begin to think forward to our shared vision of antiracist communities. By the end of this session, everyone will walk away with some ideas (and hopefully some commitments!) on how they can continue their journeys toward antiracism.
