March 24, 2022 - 12:00pm to 2:00pmUndoing Racism Workgroup
Undoing Racism is a community collective of students, staff, and faculty in the School of Social Work dedicated to fighting white supremacy at the individual, school, and structural levels.
This workgroup was established in 2019 after students, staff, and faculty took part in the People's Institute for Survival and Beyond Undoing Racism© workshops. Since then, the Undoing Racism workgroup has been working to implement the People’s Institute anti-racist community organizing model – recognizing that community organizing within our school is critical to move toward an anti-racist and anti-oppressive program to bring along all members of the community.
The Undoing Racism workgroup also emphasizes the role that white members of our community must take on to dismantle and undo white supremacist structures that benefit and maintain power for white people. Our work has largely been focused on building collective community – a fundamental step in the People’s Institute organizing model. Our dialogue and strategic planning to advance towards an anti-racist and anti-oppressive program and school community must begin with building relationships and strengthening community bonds to engage in internal and external anti-racism work.
Meetings are held monthly on the last Thursday of the month from 12-2pm. All members of our school community are invited to attend.

In this online workshop, participants will learn how to support very young children and infants who are gender diverse and/or who have differences in sex development, and their parents.

This session will center the rights of the child with DSD to be free of medically unnecessary medical procures that may result in pain and other health complications. This workshop will teach participants about the importance of implementing child-centered, gender-affirming care so all children are free to live healthy, affirmed lives. This workshop is designed to equip providers to be able to step in quickly and effectively to help families during sensitive moments.
