Interrupting Everyday Racism: Family & Workplace (Dec 2021)

Starts: December 21, 2021 1:00 pm | Ends: December 21, 2021 4:00 pm

Is there a gap between how you WANT to show up for anti-racism, and what you actually DO?

Join us for a short, action-based workshop to build your own will & skill for interrupting racism!

The workshop is designed as a learning space for white and light skin folks, and it’s open to all. For Black, Indigenous, and people of color, the focus will be on interrupting racism that’s directed at people who are more impacted than you: Black and darker skin folks. You will NOT be expected to teach white people. 

This workshop is for you if:

  • You already believe that racism and white supremacy culture exist, and they disproportionately harm Black, Indigenous, and brown people. 
  • You are not satisfied to read a book but want to put into action what you’ve learned. 
  • You are ready for active practice and coaching, with the support of skilled facilitators.

Those of us on the training team are still learning – often through our mistakes. We will offer a shared learning space with a few frameworks, some discussion, and lots of active coaching and feedback. We ask you to:

  • Be prepared to practice interrupting, as well as giving and receiving feedback, with the support of our training team. We’re going to ask you to engage actively, not just “listen and learn.”
  • Come as you are! Dress comfortably, bring food and beverages, share your space with children or pets.
  • Keep your video on. If you have to go off camera briefly to take care of privacy or accessibility needs, you can let the trainers know; otherwise, we’d like you to stay on camera. If you have questions about this, please let us know in advance.
