Communicating Racial Justice|
This course is focused on racial justice and how it relates to society. It is designed to and will facilitate conversations about racial justice work that foster authentic engagement with learners. In our time together we will discuss how diversity, race, and racism impact the work we do and explore the benefits and challenges associated with diversity in society. We will discuss biases and discriminatory practices' effects on families and talk about the factors that cause a disproportionate representation of minorities. Other areas that will be discussed and explored are cultural competency, cultural humility, disproportionality, disparity, and how they relate to the impact of culture and perceptions that can communicate multiple messages.
This course will allow students to use and communicate what they know about racial justice and equity to build understanding and agreement. Students will learn how to have conversations about race with presence, grace, and authority.
