In an effort to take action to dismantle structural racism, CEILS will be holding a summer Anti-Racist Discussion Group. Our primary goal is to provide a brave space for participants to self-educate and be in a community where we can talk about race and learn about becoming an antiracist. Our discussion will be guided by resources primarily from training: Academics for Black Survival and Wellness, organized by Black counseling psychologists and their colleagues across the country. We acknowledge that the CEILS discussion group is organized by white women, in an effort to be black allies, and although we are not experts, we are committed to learning. We welcome all identities and anyone interested in educating themselves on race to join in this conversation.
Come as often or as rarely as you like. Each time we meet we decide what the next topic will be. See below for the schedule as of July 16th, 2020.
We are excited to learn more from the experts and from each other by engaging in meaningful dialogue aimed to create equitable learning environments.
