Ending Racism Together: Healing from the Social Construction of "Race"

In the US, “race” as a social construct began 400 years ago—and continues to be constructed today. In this webinar, we will follow “Christian, land-owning, male” narrative threads through to current-day racial categories “White” and “Black;” Anti-Jewish Oppression, anti-immigrant and xenophobic policies, and criminalization of houselessness; the control of female reproduction to enforce “race purity,” and protect access to exploitable labor; and the mechanisms of genocide, exclusion, caste and assimilation. We will come together to heal from the effects of racism. We will actively disrupt the cycle of oppression passed on through our patterns of internalized oppression (inferiority) and internalized dominance (superiority) as we take on the work necessary to end racism, in our lifetime.
