ICESAHT would like to invite you to two upcoming training opportunities to celebrate Juneteenth Week!
Racial Justice in 2021: How Are We Moving from Allies to Accomplices?
Wednesday, June 16 6pm-7pm EDT
This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa Race Massacre. We honor the 156th anniversary of Juneteenth, also known as Emancipation Day, Jubliee Day, or Liberation Day. It also marks one year since the murders of Ahmuad Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd, and the protests across the country for justice for Black lives. In the wake of 2020’s #blackouttuesday and the social media activism of the pandemic-stricken country, we invite you to reflect on your own journey towards anti-racism. How are you showing up for racial justice in your community? How have you stayed committed to the work of racial equity over the course of the past year? If you have fallen out of your activism, how can you recommit to this work? Join us in an affinity space for aspiring white allies as we reflect on our allyship over the past year, discuss the importance of racial justice in the anti-violence movement, and identify strategies for moving from allies to accomplices.
Black America: Race, Leadership, and Equality
Friday, June 18 3pm-4:30pm EDT
True justice and equality continue to be a distant dream for too many in this country, and we must not allow the important progress we have made blind us to the struggles that still persist. The battle towards racial equality continues. However, Juneteenth serves as a celebration of the Black freedom gained following slavery. Even more so, it is a celebration of Black American life and resilience and honors the contributions of Black Americans to this country. Juneteenth reminds us that real change, though often frustrating and painful, is possible. In honor and recognition of the monumental importance of Juneteenth in our nation’s history, we are rededicated to addressing structural racism and racial disparities – starting with leadership. ICESAHT is pleased to announce we will be hosting a panel highlighting the Black experience within leadership. We hope you can join us for this pivotal conversation.
