Community Education for Transformation and the HWS Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion are partnering with the Geneva chapter of the NAACP to host a virtual event titled “Anti-Racist Resolutions: Building Belonging.”
It’s happening virtually on Saturday, February 20th, at 11 a.m. via Zoom.
This is the second installment of the “Anti-Racist Resolutions” series, a set of events designed to both clarify what anti-racism is and demonstrate its urgency.
“Anti-Racist Resolutions: Building Belonging” will trace the long history of anti-racist struggle in the U.S. generally and in Geneva. It will discuss how to continue and expand this fight in the future. “We will learn about the everyday operations of white supremacy and racial exclusion and commit to taking concrete actions to build a Geneva where we all belong,” organizers said in a press release. “The ongoing ‘Anti-Racist Resolutions’ series uses the new year as a time to develop individual and community resolutions to be actively anti-racist in 2021. For each event, CET and HWS’s ODEI pair with a different community group to discuss an aspect of anti-racism as it relates to the community group’s work.”
CET is described as an independent, nonpartisan collaboration of educators, broadly defined, committed to innovative and inclusive ways of learning, listening, and teaching within and across Geneva’s communities. The group says it strives to develop programming and initiatives in accordance with the needs of the community. CET also uses collaborative methodologies which center community voices in order to share lived and learned knowledge in the ongoing pursuit of a more just, equitable, and inclusive community dedicated to lifelong learning.
Participation in “Anti-Racist Resolutions: Building Belonging” is open to all members of the public and can be accessed via the following link: https://hws.zoom.us/j/91305394627
