Anti-Racist Discussion Group

  • 01/30/2021
  • 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
  • Online (Zoom)

Join us for SCRID's first Anti-Racist Discussion Group!

In response to overwhelming requests for discussion opportunities following our October workshop presentation by Antonio Goodwin, SCRID is beginning a monthly "book" club for those who would like to gather and discuss racism and how it impacts us in our personal and professional lives. We all know how busy life gets, however, so rather than selecting books to read and discuss, our focus will be on articles and presentations, written and/or signed. Discussion materials will be sourced from within, providing you the opportunity to make suggestions and even lead a discussion.

This month, our facilitator will be Antonio Goodwin. He will be guiding a discussion about anti-racism in interpreting. Brief reading materials will be provided in advance. This is NOT a workshop -- it is a discussion. If you want, please bring your blanket, a cup of tea, some snacks, a pet (if you have one), and a respectful attitude.

This is a space for us to listen to and learn from each other, unpack personal experiences and beliefs, and discuss how to apply anti-racism to our work as interpreters. This discussion will be held in ASL and is open to ALL interpreters who want to discuss and learn more about racism and anti-racism in our personal and professional lives.

Be brave! You do not need to know all of the vocabulary to participate in this discussion. This is a space to learn and grow. People may disagree, but we can have a mutually respectful discussion with the common goal of improving how we carry ourselves in the communities we serve.

Date:  January 30, 2021
