Fragile No More!

Saturday Jun 30th, 2018 6:38 PM
Learn about what factors and triggers that lead to White Fragility, and how our language sugar-coats the system of racial oppression. Through pairing up in a sharing/listening exercise, small group discussions, and role play we will practice facilitating a Fragility Intervention and how we can help dismantle privilege that acknowledges that whites hold social and institutional power over people of color.

“White Fragility is a state in which even a minimum amount of racial stress becomes intolerable, triggering a range of defensive moves. These moves include the outward display of emotions such as anger, fear, and guilt, and behaviors such as argumentation, silence, and leaving the stress-inducing situation.” ~ Robin DiAngelo ~
