Events & Opportunities to Engage

Events

September Racial Equity Roundtable "Race and Society Part II"

Thursday, September 6, 2018 (5:30-7:30pm) Emmerson Room, Humboldt Area Foundation

If race is not biology, what is it? Please join us as we examine how race resides not in nature but in politics, economics, and culture. Using part II of Episode 3 of the PBS series "Race: the Power of an Illusion" as beginning point, we will work to understand the ways in which social institutions (like schools, banks, and governments) “create” race by disproportionately channeling resources, power, status, and wealth to white people. Facilitated by Ron White and Melissa Meiris. See above link to register and for more information.  

October Racial Equity Roundtable "Intersectionality* and Privilege"

Thursday, October 4, 2018 (5:30-7:30pm) Emmerson Room, Humboldt Area Foundation

Please join us as we build our understanding of intersectionality* and privilege, and delve into discussions about how acknowledging our privilege empowers us to use it as a tool for positive change and racial justice. Using short videos, dialogue, and structured exercises on intersectionality and privilege, we will think together on how our racial identities are just one part of our diverse experiences with power and marginalization; and practice respectful strategies to be more inclusive. Facilitated by Ron White and Melissa Meiris.  See above link to register and for more information.

*Intersectionality refers to the intersection of the multiple identities we all carry (including race, gender, physical or mental ability, sexual orientation, age, religion, class etc.) and the degrees of privilege and social marginalization that come with each.

This racial equity work gives us a toolbox that helps us see things more clearly and then work in a logical and outcome-oriented way to address them.
