On the Day of Racial Healing, GW’s Center for Community Resilience and Sumner M. Redstone Global Center for Prevention and Wellness present:
The violent coup attempt at the U.S. Capitol on January 6 was a gut-wrenching reminder of the harm and trauma that results from centuries of unchecked white supremacy and racial hierarchy. As we rightfully critique and condemn expressions of white supremacy in broader society, we must also account for the ways it manifests within our own institution.
On National Day of Racial Healing (January 19, 12:00-1:30pm ET), please join GW’s Center for Community Resilience and Sumner M. Redstone Global Center for Prevention and Wellness for a panel discussion on confronting white supremacy within the School of Public Health (GWSPH).
The event will begin with a discussion that shares how white supremacy has been institutionalized in academia; offers first-hand perspectives from faculty, students, and staff about their experiences of white supremacy within GWSPH; and describes the urgent need to center anti-racism. The discussion will be followed by a robust Q&A session that dives into where GWSPH is today and what needs to change in order to move toward racial healing and equity.
Please register to participate in the event and see below for an important content warning. We look forward to the conversation.
Please note that this event will focus on challenging content dealing with racism, white supremacy, misogyny, and violence — including in the real-life experiences of members of the GWSPH community. This session is best suited for those who wish to intentionally enhance relationships and be connected listeners, and we encourage participants to prepare themselves emotionally in advance. Thank you.
