Calling Our Whiteness In: Exploring White Privilege & Committing to Racial Justice
Andy Cofino, Director of the UCLA LGBTQ Campus Resource Center, leads an interactive session aimed at engaging in authentic conversations about race, racism, white supremacy, and white privilege that are essential to inclusive, affirming, and socially just organizations and spaces.
This interactive session is intended for white students, staff, and faculty members to explore their white racial identity and their role in disrupting racism and committing to racial justice. We will explore concepts such as white privilege, institutional racism, white guilt/shame, and ways white people can “show up” more productively in conversations about race and racism. We will define these terms and discuss practices you can use to do your own internal and professional work towards racial justice.
Please note: While all students, staff, and faculty are welcome to attend this session, it will be focused on personal reflections and experiences of white racial identity and white privilege, including unpacking racist thoughts, views, and behaviors.
The event is open to members of the PCA&D community and College alumni. Please check your College email and This Week / This Month at PCA&D newsletters for the link.
Part of the College’s DEI Spring Workshop Series: An Inclusive PCA&D Begins With You.
