Shifting the Culture of Anti-racist Organizing with Tawana Petty

ENGAGE and the Undoing Racism Workgroup present a special virtual discussion featuring Detroit organizer, scholar, author and human rights activist Tawana Petty. Petty will lead us through a discussion on how we confront and work to dismantle historic racism and anti-Blackness in our society, without tokenizing or creating undo emotional labor for those most affected. Petty will share principles of anti-racist organizing from her book, “Towards Humanity: Shifting the Culture of Anti-Racism Organizing,” and discuss how non-Blacks can practice genuine non-performative collaboration with the movement for Black Lives. Discussions on how we can incorporate lessons learned from this significant moment in Civil Rights history into our practice as social workers, community leaders, and advocates will also take place.
