Webinar: “Do Your Work: The Internal Anti-Racism Journey”

November 9, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm

Guest speaker Trystan Reese brings his expertise in anti-racism work in this session for Penn State’s white students and faculty, “Do Your Work: The Internal Anti-Racism Journey.”

“You care about racism,” said Reese. “You reject racism. But how do you become an ally — or better yet, an accomplice in the fight against anti-Blackness and racism? First, you must go deep within to understand your own race story as a person with white and/or light-skinned privilege, exploring the earliest messages you received around race.”

Through the workshop, participants will examine the antidote to white fragility — white humility — and learn a practical tool for effective intervention with other people of privilege when racism rears its head.
