Such images may generate headlines, but white supremacy manifests in other ways that are far more insidious and damaging. Culturally speaking, white supremacy is the idea that white people are better and more deserving of wealth, power, and privilege than people of color. It is a self-perpetuating system that continues to fuel colonialism, exploitation, oppressions, inequities, and the brutalities that people of color continue to endure. The 2019 Overcoming Racism Conference is dedicated to dismantling its power, its structures, and the culture that enables it to thrive. Our 2019 conference goals are for participants to:   Acknowledge and confront the construct and legacy of white supremacy in this country Identify how white supremacy is embedded in the policies, practices, and structures of the criminal justice, education, housing, wealth accrual, medical, social service, and land usage systems Become familiar with tools, resources, and networks available to those who have committed themselves to removing the vestiges of white supremacy from these systems Discover ways to further the internal work each of us must do in order to effectively confront institutions long grounded in white supremacy Learn from each other about the work currently being done to dismantle white supremacy, and how we can replicate that work in our own communities Creatively envision a world without white supremacy in which everyone can flourish LOGISTICS - Getting to and parking PARKING AT METRO STATE PLEASE NOTE: Parking in the ramp on campus is $5.00 per exit.
