As part of our continuing conversation on racial justice, St. Andrew welcomes consultant and speaker Regan Byrd to speak and conduct a two-part class

September 2 & 23 | 6:00 – 9:00 pm | Sanctuary

The first class will focus on the history of race and white supremacy in the United States. Attendees will learn about the emergence of race as a social construct, the history of racism against indigenous and Black communities during the founding of the nation, and the emergence of white supremacy as the dominant racial hierarchy in the United States. This will lay the historical foundation for the second class. 

The second class will focus on how oppression operates on a structural level, using the four “I’s” of oppression as a theory. Attendees will also be trained on racism as a foundational example of a system of oppression and will be presented with a deeper examination of anti-black racism, especially within educational institutions. We will also discuss a model of allyship, for both individuals and organizations, and common mistakes or pitfalls those practicing allyship often make. 

Each class will begin with a discussion or reflection question, followed by a PowerPoint presentation from Regan Byrd on anti-oppression concepts, intermixed with several group discussion break-out sessions. The goal of these classes is to equip attendees with core language and concepts that can be used for additional intraoffice discussion and strategic planning around diversity, equity, and inclusion.

We will also be streaming virtually in a webinar format. Sign up here to receive the links.
