Gather@Grand Seminar: Engaging White Privilege—Courage and Skills Addressing White Racism
Since 2020 the Dominican Sisters of San Rafael have been offering a special Gather@Grand program providing opportunities to explore systemic racism. We hope you will consider joining us this spring for a 2-day seminar: Engaging White Privilege—Courage and Skills Addressing White Racism.
This in-person, highly interactive, seven-hour seminar focuses on two aspects of exploring and confronting societal racism in the United States: (A) Recognizing the ubiquitous nature of institutional and structural racism: every system from education to health care to law enforcement is rife with inherent disparities and injustices based on race. (B) Learning a variety of tools and techniques and tools to address the internal discomfort and the difficulties talking about race. These tools are surprisingly simple, easy to learn, and profoundly powerful for mitigating stress and anxiety, allowing us to show up for anti-racism as well as other challenges, bringing our courage and best judgment. These tools facilitate access to our best wisdom, experience, and intuition at the moment.
The presenters/ facilitators are Jennae Wallach, Peace Educator and Public Health Consultant and Alanya Snyder, Educator and Anti-racism Organizer.
The workshop is planned for afternoons on the weekend of March 12-13 from 1:30-5 pm each day.
