NEW: Indigenous anti-racism: where to begin

Clint Kuzio      4 Mar 2021      webinar      CHF BC event

This workshop will be a discussion on how communities can begin the work of addressing anti-Indigenous racism within their communities and how non-Indigenous people can support Indigenous people in the work of being anti-racist.

6 to 8 p.m.

This workshop is for all people who wish to engage with being a supportive ally for Indigenous people but are nervous and afraid to say or do the wrong thing. We will develop some shared vocabulary, go through some exercises, and learn tools on how to be anti-racist with a focus on the racism Indigenous people face. This space and time we share will be both a safe space and also challenge people to consider new ideas and approaches in their work to being a better ally.

All webinars are $35/person or $200 for seven registrations from one co-op.

Non-member rate $50 per person.
