I'm a Good Person! Isn't That Enough? How Power and Privilege Undermine Best Intentions
Join racial justice educator and writer Debby Irving for a powerful conversation to unpack systemic racism and the pitfalls of white privilege.
Award-winning author of "Waking Up White", Debby Irving has worked as a community organizer and teacher for 25 years. During that time, she admits, she did not understand systemic racism, nor her own whiteness as an obstacle to coming to grips with it.
Debby will explore how her beliefs influenced her interpretation of the world through U.S. history, media messages, and cultural habits. She will explore how she spent decades silently reaffirming harmful, outdated racial patterns instead of questioning the racial disparities and tensions she could see and feel. Come learn what has led to today’s social climate and what you can do to address social inequities.
