Anti-Racist Community Engagement – September

September 22 @ 4:00 pm - 5:45 pm

Learning In Community, The Ginsberg Center

Learning In Community, The Ginsberg Center

Part of Ginsberg Center’s Learning in Community Series

This interactive virtual workshop will interrogate the role white supremacy often plays in university community engagement experiences and will explore anti-racist approaches to our work in and with communities. The workshop is designed for students with prior knowledge or experience with community engagement who are interested in learning more about how to practice anti-racism in their engaged course, service, project, or research.

Workshop content will build on basic concepts of race, racism, social identity, power, and privilege. If you’re newer to those concepts and how they connect to community engagement, we encourage you to complete modules 1 and 2 of the Community Engagement: Collaborating for Change MOOC and/or attend our Entering, Engaging, and Exiting Communities workshop (see upcoming sessions on our homepage) before signing up for this offering. You may also want to read Tania Mitchell’s (2008) “Traditional vs. Critical Service-Learning” before attending. All these links as well as the registration link are available below under “Related Links.”
