Recent events and historical precedents in the U.S. bring our attention to racism in ways that motivate us to take action. As faculty and staff working at Amherst College, it is important both to understand and be prepared to do something about racism.
The goal of this advanced workshop is to consider antiracist approaches to put into practice with our work. Participants will focus on learning how to be antiracist rather than “not racist” as a personal and professional commitment towards eradicating racism and building a campus community that values diversity, equity and inclusion.
Upon participating in this workshop, participants will:
- Know some of the approaches and techniques of antiracism
- Create and execute individual plans committed to antiracism at the College
- Join others who are personally and professionally committed to antiracism
Registration is required. To register, submit a form at https://www.amherst.edu/amherst-story/diversity/office-of-diversity-equi...
Note: Participants are required to have attended Racism & Antiracism 2.0: Racism & Antiracism at Amherst to attend this workshop.

TRUTH! Tell Your Story Through Art & Writing: a confidential, drop-in, online Survivor Support Group is facilitated by Isabella Gitana of Survivor Arts Collective and is open to all (a)gender survivors of sexual violence, relationship violence, and/or incest. Drop-in sessions will occur on Thursdays, April 29, May 6, May 13, and May 20 from 5-7 PM EDT on Zoom Meeting ID 890 1884 3066 | Passcode 836991. Come to one or all!
We are creating a safer space to share our stories as survivors with survivors. You are supported to explore your experiences relating to sexual violence, relationship violence, and/or incest. You'll write or create art in response to prompts that will get your story flowing. We will share our stories together each week with positive feedback. This is not an art or writing class. Our focus is not on skill, rather the act of telling our story.
