Schiller Coastal Studies Center (meetup on campus for drive)





Working in the community often involves unfamiliar and unpredictable situations. How do you engage ethically? What should you do when you encounter a racist policy, remark, or action? Do you have to choose between humility and integrity? Workshop participants will discuss thorny problems involving privilege and oppression and practice tactics to interrupt racism in a way that dignifies everyone involved. This in-person workshop will include basic exploration of racial identities and ally development status, permutations of your power status with respect to the host community, and practice applying microintervention strategies in real-life scenarios. We will build upon concepts introduced in DiversityEdu and we expect all participants to have completed that training before attending.

This workshop will be facilitated by Eduardo Pazos, Sarah Seames and Andrew Lardie.

Event open only to students living on campus. A virtual version of this workshop later in March and will be open to everyone.
This event includes transportation and lunch. Participants must be available for the entire duration of the event.
After you register, you will be directed to a short survey to indicate some basics like dietary needs.
