Event Details

Working with white people who are in denial of the historical oppression of people of color is tiring enough. What is exhausting is the division between people of color and what seems like the need to fight for last place. Does it really matter what ethnic group is being oppressed at the moment, when who's in last place could change tomorrow?

 

Why are we fighting against each other when the bigger issue is systemic oppression and racism?!?

 

In order to survive in America today, minority groups are building spaces to come together and feel supported, seen, and appreciated. While I value those spaces, as well as #blackgirlmagic and #latinarebels, we are stronger in numbers when we come together and can create an unstoppable force to be reckoned with!

 

In this workshop, we will analyze impact power and privilege have in our communities of color. We will discuss ways we show up in our workplaces, in organizing spaces, and at home (with that one aunty who only likes to claim her Spanish ancestry no matter how much melanin runs through her veins!). Together, we will come up with strategies and solutions to engage WoC inside and outside your ethnic/racial groups in order to build supportive communities.

 

By the end of this session you will be able to:

  • Unpack the impact and harmful effects of racism and colorism

  • Examine your own biases, prejudices, and privilege

  • Discern what strategies and solutions you need to engage and motivate WoC

  • Build community in the most stressful of situations and mass division

 

*Location details will be sent with confirmation email.
