This is a workshop presented by the SW WA Labor Council.
Participants of this workshop will explore the manifestations of racism within our workplaces and communities – grounded in the understanding that race and organized labor are inextricably bound. WSLC’s 2015 resolution on Race & Labor calls on unions to develop a robust counter-narrative to right-wing populism, starting with a shared history and collective work of making racial justice central to our organizations and how labor allies can work together. We are also excited to host a family friendly space, to encourage intergenerational conversations and solutions.
At the end of this workshop, attendees will be able to
1. Create and participate in “brave space” conversations with other union members, coworkers and family members on race, gender and most importantly – equity
2. Define racism and identify the different manifestations inside and outside of the workplace
3. Explore implicit, unconscious bias and practice interrupting oppressive moments in small groups
Please reach out to your fellow union members and working people in our community and ask them to attend. The workshop will be family friendly so members can bring their spouses, kids, parents… anyone from their household is welcome to attend.
We’re looking forward to seeing you on Thursday, June 3rd at 6:00 PM. Don’t forget to register at http://bit.ly/SWWAworkshop
