Calling All (Non-Black) People of Color – 03/4 2:00 pm

The term “people of color” (POC) encompasses people of diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds. In this session we will acknowledge and think actively about how each of our communities distinctly experience racism, as well as the ways Anti-blackness permeates our cultures. By developing our dual capacity to process oppression we experience while simultaneously acknowledging privilege we will strategies for solidarity in the movement towards more justice and equity for all.

Being black in America brings unique joys as well as stress. If you identify as black, you need no further explanation of what we are referring to. This session is an opportunity to join other black identified staff to share what it means and what it takes to be black today. Join this circle-type space for connection, support and celebration of black identity.
What to Bring: Something that represents your ancestry (An object, a photo, an image… do you!).

How does our “whiteness” impact our work with communities of color? Now more than ever we need white people empowered to talk to other white people. Join us for an insiders conversation on what it means to be white, and the allyship opportunities that we can engage in to contribute to a more just and equitable society.

Racial constructs have long impacted our culture – what can we do about it? In this session, we will unpack a three-part framework that describes the journeys we walk to disentangle ourselves from institutionalized racism. This work requires knowledge of oneself, ability to recognize and name internalized and systematized oppression, and the courageous work to engage across cultural differences to experiment with equity and inclusion in organizations and relationships. We will combine participant story-telling with a research-backed framework to equip individuals and teams to predict and prepare for the challenges that emerge in anti-racism efforts, develop compassion for the struggle, and develop the resiliency required to persevere.
