The National Organization Conference (NOW) for Women was spectacular!
It was an honor to be Keynote Plenary Speaker on White Privilege.
Along with Desiree Jordan, moderated by Coline Jenkins we ran a workshop.
Here is a description of what our workshop entailed:
The Spirit of Change: Working the Racial Equality Muscle
the spirit of change we want to discuss the resistance one has to
talking about race. We understand family-of-origin issues such as
incest, often interfere in the process of healing which can impact one’s
ability and willingness to remain mindful of white privilege. We will
address the effect this has on activism, policy and how one can
influence & accelerate change in these areas. We’ll discuss the
‘bystander syndrome’ & demonstrate how you might stand up and out
when confrontation is necessary to make your position on racial equality
clear in your circle. You will form a ‘solid identity’ that gives you
the knowledge & ability to transform the meaning of whiteness,
therefore becoming a game-changer where racism is concerned.
Moderator: Coline Jenkins
Panelists: Desiree Jordan and Kaolin
