In part II of our foundational anti-racism workshop, we will dive deeper into white supremacy cultural norms, how they manifest in our work, and strategies to combat them as well as define anti-racism and examine where we are in that journey as individuals and as organizations. You will leave with tangible next steps for your own personal growth as well as ideas on how to support the organizations you volunteer with.

Featured Film: Roosevelt High School: Beyond Black & White
"This 30-minute film covers a lot of ground but focuses principally on the inter-relationship of school and race. Many of the underlying themes ask the viewer whether things have changed all that much in the fifty years since the founders of Roosevelt Alumni for Racial Equity (RARE), RHS Class of 1971, graduated. Beginning with voiceovers musing about the role of race in Seattle, the film reviews the history of integration in the Seattle public schools: the voluntary transfer program, the mandatory bussing program, and the neighborhood choice programs. It notes that much of the segregation in the Seattle Schools arises from discriminatory housing practices historically practiced in Seattle, such as racial covenants and “redlining” that were not ended until Seattle passed an Open Housing Ordinance in 1968. The film then segues to ask what can schools, and schooling, do to end racial inequities as racism is experienced in Seattle. Finally, the film ends by asking the viewer to become engaged in reformative change."
