Youth, Race and Organizing will demonstrate how Young Leaders, Strong City (YLSC) equips a network of students, educators, and their adult allies with tools to analyze, advocate, and dismantle systemic racism and inequities in themselves, their schools and communities through student organizing.
In this session participants will dive into understanding the power attached to listening respectfully, responsibly, and sharing in a way that is healing. We will learn what it truly means to be heard and the medicine (the healing aspects) that holds. I will utilize knowledge and lessons utilized through the La Siembra project I curate with Cara Mia Theater Co.
From drug development to drug affordability, the medicines system affects who lives and who dies. While the healthcare system gets a lot of public scrutiny and accountability, the medicines system does not. Priti Krishtel will explain how in the midst of a global pandemic that is disproportionately costing Black and Brown lives, it is critical that we deepen our collective understanding about the medicines system and the structural racism that is embedded within it.
In the midst of a global pandemic that has disproportionately affected communities of color and a national reckoning with structural racism, there is an urgent need for anti-racist storytelling and communications. This online training session will examine commonly used language and provide strategies to create narrative change and healing through a racial equity lens.
