Showing Up for Racial Justice- Chicago Chapter
Thinking Systemically Workshop
Tuesday, September 26 at 6:30-8:30 PM, Free
While white supremacy & racism like those on display in Charlottesville this August are often easy to identify, the systems that create and feed such horror can be much harder to identify and dismantle — even though these systems exist as part of our everyday lives. To build a just, anti-racist society, we need to learn more about how systemic racism works in our backyard. When we do that, we’re taking another step on our anti-racist journey and standing in solidarity with Charlottesville.
In this workshop we’ll discuss what system-level racism is and how it differs from individual-level racism. We’ll also examine how system-level racism operates in Chicago’s housing, education, and policing. When you leave, you’ll have enough background knowlege to identify what anti-racist, solution-based campaigns you want to join right here in Illinois!
