Confronting Whiteness and Racism in Sex Ed and Beyond w/ Tristan Taormino
Are you a white person who’s ready to get their shit together but doesn’t know where to begin? Come to this workshop on individual and systemic anti-racist work. We will examine concepts like microaggressions, white fragility, colorblindness and how racist norms intersect with gender, sexual orientation, class, disability, and other identity markers. Let’s identify the big and small ways that we do harm to people of color and reinforce white supremacist values (regardless of intention). We will support one another as we look inward to explore where racism shows up in our lives, how we acknowledge our privilege, and what we can do when we are called in/out. We must develop tools to shift out of a place of defensiveness and shame and into one where we can be thoughtful, self-aware, resilient allies and co-conspirators with people of color. Note: this will be an all-white space—not to further segregate, but to allow white people to take on the labor of educating ourselves and each other. It’s a space where we can ask “stupid” questions, make mistakes, and support each other to learn and grow. This workshop utilizes the White Anti-Racist Culture Building Toolkit created by Alliance of Anti-Racists Everywhere LA (AWARE-LA), an affiliate of Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ).
