The Racial Justice and Liberatory Practice Series Fall 2022 Courses

About this event

Racial Justice & Liberatory Practice Series

This fall, Racial Justice & Liberatory Practice Series will present 4 distinct* mixed self-study and live online courses that explore the historical and modern-day context of racism, white supremacy, and oppression from a systematic and interpersonal perspective. There will be an emphasis on an analysis of power and critical reflection on who benefits and who is harmed. All coursework is meant to allow participants to enhance their capacities to take action that challenges oppressive systems such as racism, sexism, classism, ageism, ableism, heterosexism, in the context of social work. Participants will have the opportunity to examine their experiences of privilege and oppression. This course will utilize book chapters, articles, videos, podcasts, websites, discussions, and more as ways of learning, with a focus on theory and action.
