Anti-racist Education for White Educators

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
This session will be a space for white participants to share what we are grappling with in regards to anti-racism. All experience-levels welcome! All questions welcome! One reason for white folks to meet separately is to process questions & feelings we have about race & racism without putting a burden of teaching or emotional labor on our peers who identify as Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC). There is a simultaneous session for BIPOC leaders.

Topics of discussion will focus primarily on identifying race privilege in everyday life and in classrooms, and practicing anti-racist education in classrooms.
