White Educators for Racial Justice Workshop

Saturday, May 11, 2019, 5:00 PM

White Educators for Racial Justice began as an informal group of educators who met to discuss Christopher Emdin's "For White Folks Who Teach in the Hood and the Rest of Y'All Too" and Robin D'Angelo's "What Does it Mean to be White: Developing White Racial Literacy". After the 2016 election, the group evolved into an open meeting to support white educators in developing their racial literacy for racial justice in their classrooms and learning communities. We started this group because we believe that in order to challenge racism and white supremacy, white people need to develop our own racial literacy in order to unlearn how we enact white privilege and uphold white supremacy. We do not see ourselves as experts in this work and are open to collaborating with anyone else who wants to be a part of the conversation(s).  We believe it is important that we (white people) take responsibility for this education ourselves, so that our colleagues of color are not put into positions where they have to educate us (white people) about racism and oppression. While this group is open to educators of all identities and racial affiliations, it should be noted that considerable time will be used to address white educators’ racial literacy. White Educators for Racial Justice is committed to developing our personal and collective racial literacy, supporting the work of local education groups and organizations led by people of color, and shifting our teaching practice to be more transformative and culturally responsive.  White Educators for Racial Justice 2018-19 workshop series is facillitated by Zara Zimbardo, co-founder of White Noise Collective.  Register for one session or all of the dates. However, the daylong workshop in May repeats the work of the three Tuesday evenings. January 22, 2019: Difficult Conversations March 5, 2019: Antidotes to White Fragility May 11, 2019: Difficult Conversations & Antidotes to White Fragility (daylong)
