Speaking up and Calling in: Skills to Interrupt White Supremacy and Racism with Love and Compassion

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In this workshop we will present and practice basic communication skills, methods to challenge and deconstruct white supremacy and racism. We often lack the skill needed to engage meaningful, effective, and heartfelt conversations challenging white supremacy with those closest to us — our families, friends, and communities. In this interactive session we will cultivate a critical and compassionate understanding of the difference between “safe” and “comfortable” conversations and learn how to push through discomfort to engage these important conversations from a lens of love.  We will increase our skill in explaining and discussing the construction and impacts of white supremacy to individuals who are at varying levels of experience, and who may not share our beliefs and ideals. And will deepen our ability to effectively engage these conversations to connect across difference and begin deconstructing the culture of white supremacy.
