Bringing an Antiracist Lens to Volunteerism
Wednesday, June 22 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
From the Minnesota Alliance for Volunteer Advancement (MAVA) this 90-minute workshop is based on research on the 8 Strategies for Creating a More Inclusive Volunteer Program (2018). the training uncovers the concept of the white savior complex and the repercussions of adopting it within the field of volunteerism, helping many good-intentioned volunteers understand the harmful effects of the white savior complex for disenfranchised communities of color without adopting an antiracist framework.
In this workshop participants will learn ways to adopt inclusive practices that welcome community advocacy and leadership to dismantle systemic and racial oppression from ineffective volunteer systems. You will advance your leadership skills by learning practices to influence organizational change. You will walk away with practical strategies that will allow community members to partner alongside you in the journey to be antiracists.
