Day of Reflection 2019

April 27, 9am-noon, Sam Gary Library

SUN's 2nd annual day of reflection: Informing, educating and empowering.

In partnership with the Denver Public Library, and the MCA

Facilitated by Dr. Antwan Jefferson, Clinical Assistant Professor, Human Development and Family Relations & Urban Community Teacher Education

Participants will be able to recognize

One’s own implicit biases.

How we each unknowingly participate in forms of bias.

How implicit biases are currently impacting the community, and how individual action could further shape the community.

 

Participants will consider and discuss the following

Have you observed oppression differently over space (geographic regions, or institutions) and time (your lived experience)?

What makes oppression harder to recognize in some settings?

When do you recognize your own power, when do you recognize your own privilege, when do you recognize your own prejudice?

What do these things combined mean for our community?
