Unpacking Safety & Self Defense

In a partnership with Kaitlin Noss of the NYU Prision Education Program and the Center for Anti-Violence Education (CAE) we will be examining the ways white women’s pursuit of safety has enacted racial violence. Grounded in a historical understanding of how our safety has been used a justification for violence and mass incarceration of People of Color, men in particular, we will also interrogate the ways we carry that in our own lives. The session will end with a physical self defense demonstration by CAE.

*All are welcome at this workshop. But it has been particularly designed for people who have been perceieved as “white women”. This includes trans people of all genders who may have had this experience, as well as People of Color who are seen as white.

Confront White Womanhood WEBINAR

For centuries, violence has been done in the name of—and physically enacted by—white women. By examining historical contexts in conjunction with personal story-sharing exercises, we confront how white supremacy shows up in our own behavior. Through vulnerable discussions about individual complicity, we empower attendees to disrupt white supremacy from within their own communities.

Organizers Rhiannon Childs, and Heather Marie Scholl will lead this webinar session.

We are committed to helping you embody that change. We believe through practices of personal interrogation we can shift how we as white women show up, and thus becoming better accomplices in the fight for freedom.

*A new in person workshop Unpacking Safety and Self Defense will be presented in NYC Sept 14. Those attending the webinar first will receive a discount and first priority in registering for this event (limited spots available).
