In the US, “race” as a social construct began 400 years ago—and continues to be constructed today. In this webinar, we will follow “Christian, land-owning, male” narrative threads through to current–day racial categories “White” and “Black;” Anti-Jewish Oppression, anti-immigrant and xenophobic policies, and criminalization of houselessness; the control of female reproduction to enforce “race purity,” and protect access to exploitable labor; and the mechanisms of genocide, exclusion, caste and assimilation. We will come together to heal from the effects of racism. We will actively disrupt the cycle of oppression passed on through our patterns of internalized oppression (inferiority) and internalized dominance (superiority) as we take on the work necessary to end racism in our lifetime.
WEBINAR DESIRED OUTCOMES
At the end of this webinar, we will have:
- Understood the historical roots, narratives, hurts, and justifications that led to the social construction of “race.”
- Dismantled the false belief in racial hierarchy as a catalyst to initiate and sustain a racial healing practice.
- Released despair, helplessness, panic, exhaustion, shame, guilt, and/or numbness as we face the impacts of racism on us, our families, and the world.
- Deepened our understanding of LJIST’s core theory of social transformation and its application to ending racism.
You will have 30 days from the date of purchase to watch this webinar.
