The Healing Racism AZ Committee will be hosting its next session!!
My Fragility: Dealing with My Own Sh*t, on Wednesday, September 30, 6-8 PM. This is the second session of our year-long dialogue series, “Studies on Whiteness.” In this workshop, we will identify and reflect upon the actions and behaviors we commit that uphold Whiteness and systemic racism.
This dialogue will focus on unpacking the defensive instincts and/or reactions that a White person experiences when attempting to address anything to do with race.
We will examine how through our Whiteness practices we derail our own meaningful Anti-Racist efforts. This Healing Racism event will be on Zoom on September 30 from 6PM-8PM. Link here to register
