White Anti-Racist Training: Deconstructing Whiteness in Women's and Queer Communities

Saturday, October 25, 2014

2-6pm
RSVP for location
 
Come learn some of the skills needed to employ white anti-racist practices specifically in queer and women's communities.  Spend the afternoon learning to be a better ally and leader.  Whether this is your first conversation about whiteness or your hero is Anne Braden, come take part in our effort to create a community of self-education and accountability.  RSVP'ing allows us to know how many people to expect for copies, snacks etc!  EVERYONE IS WELCOME!  
 
ENVISION is a discussion space designed to equip white* students, faculty and staff with the tools to analyze white privilege and to challenge racism within and beyond our campus' women's and queer communities. ENVISION supports the development of anti-racist practices and can serve as a supplement to social justice work in other spaces on campus. We welcome participants who are already actively involved in such spaces, as well as folks who are new to social justice work and interested in these conversations
 
*ENVISION focuses on white students, faculty and staff for three reasons: 1) it shifts the burden off of people of color to educate white people about racism and oppression; 2) white people can play an important role in supporting each other to challenge racism; and 3) it creates an atmosphere that allows white people to share more openly and honestly about race, creating more opportunities for growth and learning.
 
Questions?  Contact Marisa at mboyce@berkeley.edu.
