Practice Makes Perfect; No More Silence
Presented by Tracy Smith:
There has been repeated calls for opportunities to build up our anti-racist vocabulary and skill development in the ability to interrupt micro and macroaggressions. Through small group and large group role plays as well as reviews of written scenarios, participants will have a chance to practice breaking the silence. We will provide a supportive, authentic, and brave space, which welcomes all levels of experience with interrupting the silence.
We strongly recommend attendance at one or both of the Microaggressions and Bystander Intervention sessions (Part 1 and Part 2), because this session will not cover background information about micro and macroaggressions.
