Understanding Systemic Racism & Resulting Inequity in Latino Communities
Thursday April 8th at 4PM ET/ 3PM CT/ 1PM PT
Both the COVID-19 pandemic and Black Lives Matter protests across the country have put a long-overdue spotlight on the deeply entrenched racism in our nation’s institutions and policy systems. The unique effects of institutionalized racism on the Hispanic community aren’t widely known, in part attributable to the fact that Latinos have been largely invisible through the nation’s history.
Join UnidosUS for the official release of the position paper, “Toward a More Perfect Union: Understanding Systemic Racism & Resulting Inequity in Latino Communities,” the first of a series that examines historical and current effects of racism on Latinos. It offers historical examples of systemic racism, and how their effects persist, affecting Latinos’ well-being today.
We hope that this primer can help policymakers, advocates, and Latinos themselves better understand the structural barriers that prevent Hispanics from fully being included in a shared movement toward racial equity for all Americans.
Don’t miss this important conversation featuring Julissa Arce, Nationally Best-Selling Author, Speaker, and Activist; Charles Kamasaki, Senior Cabinet Advisor, UnidosUS; and Viviana López Green, Senior Director, Racial Equity Initiative, UnidosUS.
WiCyS Leadership Series: Anti-Asian Violence, Our Response and the Role of Leadership
April 15 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm CDT
Leading with equity, inclusion and allyship is a conversation where we, as volunteer leaders within the WiCyS organization, agree to engage in a dialogue from a place of consent for all of us to learn and grow. The WiCyS Leadership Series: Speak. Listen. Community. cultivates the community and space for that dialogue.
The April session of the WiCyS Leadership Series: Speak. Listen. Community. will be addressing Anti-Asian violence. In the wake of the Atlanta shootings, the US is continuing to confront its history with racism; now it’s regarding the history of racism with the Asian community. Leaders in the public and private sector play a significant role in how organizations and individuals respond to help bring awareness to this issue. Join us for a conversation on how leaders, and all of us as individuals, can best contribute to decreasing anti-Asian racism. This will also be a healing space to reflect and share what has come up for us during this time.
Join us, April 15 at 1pm CT as WiCyS members, Jessica Robinson and Nathan Chung facilitates the discussion.
If you are a WiCyS volunteer in a leadership role and have not received an invite from Lynn Dohm, email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Upon registration, you will receive two articles that will provide background reading for the session. Preparation time: 10 minutes.
