SFA: Implicit Bias: The Inner Work of Bias and Oppression

September 2, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


The bigotry and barriers of systemic oppression are all around us. Many of us consider ourselves to be nice, open-minded people, free of racist thoughts or actions…but it is this very mindset that is dangerous and helps to keep they cycles of oppression going. It is often easier to see the biases and prejudices of others, but it is imperative that we take a hard look within ourselves – regardless of how “good” or “well intended” we are. We must examine both bias and internalized oppression.

Turning inward is not only the first step, but it is also a lifelong task of self-exploration necessary towards justice and liberation. Join facilitator Rachel Luce-Hitt as we embark on a journey of doing this inner work.
