International Offering, Time Zones: (please double check your time zone as it relates to Pacific Standard Time)
Saturday, May 9th @ 11AM PST, 2PM EST, 6PM GMT, 8PM S.Africa
This event will run for up to 2 hrs as a continuation of PART 1 which occured on April 30th.
This fundraiser is sponsored by Education For Racial Equity.
All Post production proceeds will be donated to organizations offering rapid response to communities of color most impacted by Covid 19 and who have the least access to vital resources.
Please join us for a series of candid conversations with authors and thought leaders Resmaa Menakem, author of “My Grandmother’s Hands” and Dr. Robin DiAngelo author of “White Fragility.”
While the coronavirus does not discriminate, the societies in which it spreads certainly do. Racial weathering is a term used in trauma work to describe the embodied effects of racism that lead to poorer outcomes for communities of culture. Structural racism and systemic racial weathering is compounding the devastation Covid-19 is wreaking on these communities. If we cannot distinguish the differences in the pandemic’s impact within the context of structural racism, we cannot address them. In this dialogue, Resmaa & Robin will identify how whiteness circulates in the pandemic, how racism intensifies the stress for people of culture, how that toxic stress is embodied, and what we can do individually and communally.
This will be a two part discussion: participants are welcome to join for one or both conversations. The first conversation will be focused on the current social crisis related to covid 19 in communities of color. The second conversation will be a continuation of that conversation with an opportunity for the speakers to address questions from participants.
All post production proceed from these events ( 85%) will be donated to the following organizations and causes:
National Domestic Workers Alliance
National Farm Workers Alliance
Right Relations Fund for Navajo Nation (c/o Community Learning Network)
The Philadelphia Community Bail Fund
Black Mama’s Bailout Fund
