Cultivating Justice – Exploring Racial Bias
We are witnessing racism being normalized in our country. We see it in the media, in our laws, and in our institutions. We experience it in our daily interactions and we see our politicians use race to further polarize our country, divide us and weaken us. Come join us as we explore why NEA/VEA cares about Racial Justice and why we have a long-term commitment to it. In this very interactive workshop, we will also learn about the “brain science” behind implicit bias and racial bias and we will explore our own biases, by using tools like pictures, videos and fun tests. You will walk away with an understanding on how you can join our fight for racial justice in schools and communities.
