White Saviorism: Knowing Your Role in Anti-Racism, Equity, and Inclusion (Virtual)
Event Category 

$89 for MCN members; $129 for non-members

“It feels awkward to say ‘The White Community’, right? A reason for this is that whiteness is afforded the acknowledgement that white people are diverse in their cultures, thoughts, and realities. The actions of one white person, or a small group of white people, are not systemically positioned as representative of all white people. So why are we so comfortable saying ‘the Black, the Indigenous, the Asian, or the Muslim community’?” - @ancestorsfuture

As White folks, we often do not seek to understand what our role is in anti-racism, equity and inclusion, even in our own workplaces and community spaces. This training will help you understand the Eight White Identities and find your role in the ongoing work of racial and social justice in our communities. All learner types were thought of when planning this training, with times for individual reflection, small group work, and full group sharing. Join us to say no to white saviorism and commit to working toward being an ally and accomplice.

See the event website for details on topics covered, learning objectives, and registration. 

The presenter for this event is Natalie Ringsmuth, founder and executive director of Cloud Unite, a nonprofit working to reduce racial, religious, and cultural tensions in Central Minnesota.
