Creating a Culture of Allies: Dismantling Systemic Racism & Sexism Together

May 12 @ 7:30 am - 10:30 am

USD750

A CALL TO CONNECTION AND ACTION

The year of the pandemic surfaced a world of fear and despair as it exposed deep racial inequities and injustices, along with highly charged political and social divides inherent in our institutions, communities, and mindsets.

Racism and/or Sexism were front and center in many of the past year’s defining events: George Floyd’s murder, the insurrection at the Capitol, the Atlanta mass shootings.

And, while there is a collective cry for justice and accountability, for an end to systemic racism — in the criminal justice system, the healthcare system, the financial system — many of us are left feeling helpless, wondering how we can help create meaningful change?

  • How do we bridge the gaps that exist between those of different races, ages, faiths, genders, sexual identity, political orientation and financial ability?
  • How do we move beyond polarization and hate; beyond unconscious privilege & bias; and beyond internalized oppression.
  • How do we move toward mutual understanding, respect, collaboration & hope?

“NEVER GIVE UP. NEVER GIVE IN. NEVER BECOME HOSTILE… HATE IS TOO BIG A BURDEN TO BEAR.”
– JOHN LEWIS

For those of us who benefit from white privilege, taking action cannot be framed as “saving” or “helping” people of color. Whites must peel back the veils of privilege that so often result in non-action or perpetuate ignorance. We need to stare into the shadow of our conditioning in the ideology of white supremacy, which for centuries has been baked into the systems that underpin our society, whether we are aware of them, whether we agree with them.

We also need our friends and colleagues who are people of color. We need their genius, their spirit, and their love. Together, we need to take action that will result in equal protection, justice, and true equality. We need each other. We are in this together.

Together, our voices and actions can make a difference.
