From the attempted coup by white nationalists on January 6th to everyday interactions in our workplaces, white supremacy is threaded through our lives. A crucial piece of the work toward an anti-racist culture is the small moves each of us can make to bring accountability and criticality to our daily interactions. In this session, we will name some of the elements of white supremacy culture and discuss a few strategies that white and BIPOC participants can learn to notice the effects of white supremacy upon us and then to interrupt it in our everyday lives.
This community conversation will be facilitated by We Need 2 Talk, a partnership between Jessica Hochman and Tonya Leslie. Our collaboration began as professional development talks and workshops for educators and librarians, and has grown into a consultancy that supports the work of educators, information professionals, and creative professionals from the publishing and music industry.
Please join us for the two other discussions in this series. Supporting and Sustaining Anti-Racist Work takes place on Thursday, March 4 at 4:00pm, and What we talk about when we talk about “equity”: from essential workers to George Floyd to Nice White Parents takes place on Thursday, March 18 at 4:00m.
