About the event
What is anti-racism? For that matter, what is racism and how do we combat it effectively? Many definitions and common understanding of racism do not reflect the complexity and layered reality behind oppression and oppressive systems. Are you someone looking to deepen your understanding of oppression, privilege, and your role in combating racism as a white ally beyond your initial introduction into this subject? Then this training is for you. In this training, hosted by Regan Byrd, an anti-oppression consultant, we will educate you on the 4 I's of oppression, an excellent framework for understanding oppression on a deeper level and the common pitfalls that stop many, if not most, white allies from being genuinely effective in their work combating oppression and being in true partnership with POC. We are especially interested in folks who have a base knowledge of white privilege, white supremacy, and allyship, and are looking to expand upon knowledge they have already received from other trainings, documentaries, work in the field etc. Join this training for an intense core training on racism, anti-racism, allyship, and bystander intervention, which a special emphasis on racism black women face/misogynoir.
