Grapple Lab: Culture of Supremacy

Date: Monday, June 19, 2023, 5:30 – 7:30pm MT
Location: Online
Cost: Free

In this month’s lab we will grapple with the Culture of Supremacy. Defined as: Characteristics that play out in organizations and are reinforced by culture. They are damaging because they are used as norms and standards without being proactively named or chosen by the group. They promote white supremacy thinking that compromises relationships and collective action. Because of how culture functions, these characteristics impact everyone.

— Kerri Kelly, Activist/Author, American Detox.

White Bodied participants will learn to play with the tool of taking ongoing inventories of White Culture internalized beliefs. We will exchange ideas and practices around how to recognize behaviours and assumptions that continue to oppress other bodies of Culture (BIPOC) and how to change our perspectives and become more accountable to the harm we can cause.

BIPOC participants will form a separate caucus with Cesar Cala to discuss anything that came up with the sharing of internalized beliefs of White Supremacy Culture and any current community needs.
