Click here to register. A sliding scale donation is requested and goes exclusively to the BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and people of color) facilitators and workshop advisors.
This online workshop is comprised of two 2-hour sessions and uses story sharing, reflection, and physical expression to give participants opportunities to recognize and shift away from racism. White people are the target audience for this workshop, however BIPOC who feel called to observe and/or share their perspective are welcome.
The learning goals of the workshop are to develop a personal understanding of white supremacy cultural norms; to practice and build stamina for self-reflection around issues of racism; and “to recognize how the system of racism shapes our lives, how we uphold that system, and how we might interrupt it.” (Sensoy, Özlem; DiAngelo, Robin, “Reading Guide for White Fragility” 2018)
The workshop presenters are Mo Desir, a Humboldt County artist specializing in Social Justice and Arts Education; Noël August, a Queer performance artist, producer, activist, & educator; and Sarah Peters, a Theatre artist and educator focused on learning in community towards racial justice.

Do you consider yourself an environmentalist? Do you know whose land you’re currently on and how it has been managed by Indigenous peoples since time immemorial? Have you ever learned about or considered how the contemporary environmental movement has a history rooted in white supremacy and settler colonialism?
Are you ready to start unpacking these themes to do sustainability work that recognizes the white supremacist legacy of environmentalism that worked to disenfranchise Indigenous peoples and other communities of color?”
If so, you are invited to attend this Humboldt State University presentation hosted by Katie Koscielak in the Office of Sustainability and Dr. Kaitlin Reed, Assistant Professor in the Native American Studies department, titled “White Supremacist Roots of American Environmentalism” on August 3rd from 1pm-2:30pm PST.
