Allies & Antiracism
The racism that has developed over several centuries is now woven into every major system that structures daily life in the United States. Similarly, whiteness and white norms underlie major systems in our nation. Historically, it has been people of color who have pushed back most strongly against racism, racial injustice, and white privilege. However, for radical systemic change to occur, white people who still hold the majority of institutional power within those systems must join with people of color to demand change. Exploring the two related concepts allyship and anti-racism we learn what's required for white people to effectively and respectfully work for racial justice. Please join our discussion.
