Interrupting Racism: Tips & Tools for White People

Tuesday, September 19 at 11:30 am

Interfaith & Prayer Room of the Ohio Union

Lunch will be served at this highly interactive workshop that will strive to increase self-awareness, explore beliefs about race, and examine racism. Participants will learn tools for allyship, and develop a personal plan of action to interrupt racism. This is a participatory workshop, all are welcome, though content will focus on skill building amongst white identified people.

This event also counts for 1 DICE Credit toward your DICE Certificate. More information about DICE and how to earn credits can be found here: go.osu.edu/dice.

Ally Week is an initiative that seeks to reach out to the entire Ohio State campus community in an effort to encourage students, staff and faculty to act in solidarity with and on behalf of people who are of a different race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religious or spiritual identity, gender identity/expression, socioeconomic class, or other identity different than their own.

Each of the week’s events and programs are heavily focused on the themes of awareness, education and action. The Week of Action sponsors, The Student Life Multicultural Center and Residence Life, are invested in working with the Ohio State community to share the information and tools necessary for everyone to actively participate as an “ally” to members of our campus and Central Ohio community.

At the conclusion of the week, we hope that all participants will have a better understanding of their fellow Buckeyes and have learned new tools in advocating for one another.
