Thursday, April 4: Parent Workshop - Interrupting Privilege
Salmon Bay School Auditorium from 6 - 8 pm.
This workshop asks participants to reflect deeply on their own positions of privilege - and lack thereof - as well as how one group's privilege shores up another group's inequality. We connect data about structural inequities to the everyday realities of our own lives. The workshop begins with some grounding information about racism and systems of privilege, including important terminology. Participants will engage in activities that allow them to consider their own positions in systems of inequality and privilege and begin imagining what interrupting these systems might entail. Taught by Ralina Joseph, founding director of the Center for Communication, Difference, and Equity (CCDE) at the University of Washington. For more information, see our
