Confronting Systemic Racism
Nov 29 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Confronting Systemic Racism @ Harvard Square | Cambridge | Massachusetts | United States

This 5-week course will focus on bridging a deep understanding of personal and structural racism into commitments and a solid plan to move forward. Participants will examine their experiential roles in the dynamics of systemic racism and find the next step in framing their roles in social justice movements. This course is geared to move beyond talking about racism and social oppression and set on finding ways to take action, whether in your own personal sphere or in your community.

All are welcome, but please note the course takes an explicit view that transforming both ourselves and our society to be racially just implicates a responsibility in white and privileged folks to engage in this work more robustly.

This group will become a safe and trusted container for leaders to bring their most vexing racial equity challenges. It will unpack the biases that people carry that get in the way of leading this work even more powerfully. It will have separate caucus time for the White and People of Color leaders to unpack the differing personal and professional challenges each group faces.
