Critical Awareness - Critical Activation
Critical Awareness is a ground-breaking program aiming to activate and educate white participants. Co-created with local BIPOC educators, we’ll hear directly about the historic and contemporary challenges facing local Black, Latinx, and Kumeyaay communities.
This is also a rare opportunity to respond to racism since BIPOC-led nonprofits and community leaders will inform and invite participants to join them in solidarity in a variety of ways throughout the course and beyond.
While it’s up to white people to get up to speed on the triumphs and challenges of BIPOC communities, many have over-burdened (likely unintentionally) BIPOC people in their learning process, expecting BIPOC neighbors, colleagues, or friends to fill in the gaps for them. This program is something of the opposite.
We’ve identified seasoned BIPOC educators who have the time and expertise to walk students towards a deeper understanding of Others. Plus, we don’t expect our teachers to work and answer questions for free or at a heavily reduced rate.
