February 2021, Dismantling White Fragility: A Conversation around Transformative Justice and Racial Awakenings
The last event in our three-part Our Stories webinar series, Dismantling White Fragility: A Conversation around Transformative Justice and Racial Awakening explores the intersection of race, healing, and justice.
Robin DiAngelo, a researcher and author of the best-selling book “White Fragility,” explains white fragility to be a defensive response by a white person when their whiteness is highlighted or mentioned, or their racial worldview is challenged, whether this response is conscious or otherwise.
White fragility creates the interpersonal and systemic conditions that prevent courageous conversations around racial justice and equity, and the ways in which white supremacy systematically impacts Black, Indigenous, People of Color. This webinar will focus on dismantling white fragility and demonstrate how we can lean into the discomfort to have these uncomfortable but necessary conversations. The goal is to discuss how non-BIPOC can embody anti-racism; embrace learning and processing from a place of compassion and curiosity; and empower viewers with ideas for actionable steps they can take to create brave spaces and promote collective racial healing.
