"White Supremacy Culture (with Mary Gannon and friends) - What It Is and What to Do About It" (via Zoom): Racism often refers to acts of overt, intentional prejudice and a social order that debases people of color while glorifying whiteness. But white supremacy is a systemic and structural phenomenon woven throughout our culture rather than just the work of racist individuals who intentionally and maliciously discriminate. Our institutions and social practices themselves prop up white advantage and protect white communities, while making communities of color vulnerable to exploitation, domination, and violence. What actions are needed to repair ourselves in order to identify and dismantle white supremacy culture? . 6:30 p.m. Brattleboro Democracy Forum is organized by We Celebrate Democracy/ Civil Rights For All. Gannon is a racial equity/social justice educator and organizer. She's on the Exec. Committee for the Windham County NAACP and a Board Member with the Rights and Democracy Institute. Zoom. Meeting will be recorded/aired on BCTV and WVEW. Link to meeting/dial by location, pre-session resources, visit: www.wecelebratedemocracycivilrightsforall.org.
