This will be an informal group discussion for white educators who would like accountability towards doing the work of unpacking white privilege. Participants will engage in dialogue around identifying and understanding white privilege and how to engage in conversations around race so that we do not perpetuate racial injustice in our schools and classrooms. It is a space where white educators can practice, model, and improve anti-racist practices through asking ignorant questions and processing deep emotion without co-opting multiracial dialogues or hurting colleagues of color. This group was started in the 2016-2017 school year, is ongoing, and welcomes new participants.
*This event is seat-free for members of the NYC Special Education Collaborative. Members do NOT need permission from a school leader to register for this event, despite the checkbox in the registration page.
