Interrupting Racism in Mostly White Communities

Join us for a presentation and conversation* on antiracism. In this workshop, you will learn and discuss important terms, including racism, white supremacy, white privilege and white fragility. You will also explore the importance of addressing racism even in mostly white communities and practice responding to instances of racism that may show up in volunteerism using various practice scenarios. You will leave with resources to address and dismantle racism. This webinar welcomes those who are newer to conversations on race and those who would like to share their knowledge and experiences with others.

*We believe that dismantling racism requires conversation. Therefore, this webinar will be highly interactive and will require you to be able to view the PowerPoint slides, use your audio to listen and microphone to speak to others. Please plan to join us from a setting that allows you to engage and participate fully.
