Presentation: Racism is a system of structuring opportunity and assigning value based on the social interpretation of how one looks "race" that unfairly disadvantages some individuals and communities, unfairly advantages other individuals and communities, and saps the strength of the whole society through the waste of human resources (credit to Dr. Camara Phyllis Jones). Anti-racism is a practice and requires a sustained commitment—you cannot plug in and out of anti-racism. Whether this is the first time you are hearing the term anti-racism or you are familiar with it, the goals of this session are to further your individual and collective understanding of anti-racism, increase your comfort level when talking about racism, and strengthen your practice of anti-racism.

Discussion topics include:
•    Food Inequities 
•    January 6, 2021 Insurrection at the U.S. Capitol 

This event is organized & supported by The BIPOC Faculty Group and the Associate Dean, Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion.
