Propose a Workshop for the Overcoming Racism Conference

submitted by

The theme: Dismantling White Supremacy – Its Power, Structures & Culture is the focus of this call for proposals for the fall 2019 Overcoming Racism Conference. Workshops will be offered two afternoons in breakout sessions lasting 90 minutes each. We expect our workshop presenters to create participatory and reflective opportunities for participants to be actively engaged and stimulated.

We seek workshops that enable participants to:
* Acknowledge and confront the construct and legacy of white supremacy in this country
* Identify how white supremacy is embedded in the policies, practices, and structures of the criminal justice, education, housing, wealth accrual, medical, social service, and land usage systems
* Become familiar with tools, resources, and networks available to those who have committed themselves to removing the vestiges of white supremacy from these systems
* Discover ways to further the internal work each of us must do in order to effectively confront institutions long grounded in white supremacy
* Learn from each other about the work currently being done to dismantle white supremacy, and how we can replicate that work in our own communities
* Creatively envision a world without white supremacy in which everyone can flourish

DEADLINE: Proposals must be received by 5:00 pm on July 22nd, 2019
