Seeing and Disrupting Racism
August 12, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
UPDATE! Today’s workshop is CANCELLED. We will be concentrating our efforts and support to today’s Solidarity Trumps Hate Rally in anniversary of the Charlottesville white supremacist rally. We encourage all planning on attending Seeing and Disrupting Racism to show up and speak out against the violence, hate speech, and supremacy that far right groups promote. We will rally together at Burlington City Hall Park at 3pm.
This program was developed for predominantly white audiences because efforts to end racism does not fall solely on those oppressed. We start by defining racism. Then we walk participants through the concept of white fragility. We go over how white fragility perpetuates racism and specific ways to disrupt that cycle. Free for all and there is not registration needed. People are encouraged to arrive at 2:30pm to participate in a PJC New Volunteer Orientation.
