Race Equity: A New Reality
Are you tired of shaking your head and stomping your feet in resigned exasperation about the current state of race equity in this country? Do you want to gain a more informed and constructive point of view on systemic racism? Do you want to be a part of a new community committed to ending system racism?
How did we get here?
Systemic racism is the compounded result of centuries of legislation, customs and manufactured beliefs that were designed to intentionally elevate the White race over all other races for the benefit of economic, social and political power.
Since details about the race-based agenda used to establish the governing laws and statues of this country were omitted, hidden, from mainstream education, most of us were never educated about the racist motives of the founding fathers. Instead, our education was acquired through experiencing White Supremacy and Non-White Oppression.
Systemic racism is the root cause of inequity among races. It is insidious and has been allowed to infest every facet of our society, causing generations of havoc - confusion, misunderstanding, frustration, anger, hatred, disconnection - between races.
In order for race equity to become a reality, the systems that have historically advantaged White people over Non-White people must be identified and redesigned to promote equity for all races. As individuals, we influence, benefit, and perpetuate the systems that allow this country to operate as it does. It is up to us to disrupt the systems that promote supremacy and oppression and rebuild those systems to promote restorative equity.
With the help of the Scene on Radio Seeing White podcast, we will explore the intentional design of systemic racism in America and:
The tradition of avoiding difficult conversations in our society has long had a polarizing impact on our communities and country. We seek comfort and validation for our own perspectives from like-minded comrades, reinforcing systems of beliefs that are rooted in partial knowledge, a lack of awareness and limited connection to a broader set of people and perspectives.
Using knowledge, awareness, and direct connection Going There provides a constructive framework for exploring a broader set of perspectives and the opportunity to develop an evolved, more fully informed system of beliefs around topics that have traditionally been too difficult to have.
Through these workshops, we hope to the knowledge, awareness & connection will inspire and enable new communities of change agents to begin creating a new reality around race equity in this country.
Going There workshops are for people of all backgrounds who are ready to create a new reality around human relations in this country. Our workshops will focus on knowledge, awareness & connection with a intentional bias toward inclusion and equity.
