Racial-Identity Caucus: Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC)

Racial-Identity caucusing is a powerful anti-racist tool in confronting the effects of internalized racial oppression and internalized racial superiority in an organization. Members work separately in their respective racial identity groups, Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) or White Ally, to examine the dynamics of their organization, unpack them, and plan for action.

Although it may seem counter-intuitive to caucus in separate groups, there are good reasons to do so. Within respective racial identity group, individuals learn to work towards dismantling racism from their separate and particular positionality. When they come back together, both identity groups have the skills and tools to move forward together to name, address, and dismantle institutional racism. This time to explore and unpack is known to increase the resilience of individuals doing the difficult work of undoing institutionalized racism.

Join us for our complementary facilitated discussion and learn from each other. This scheduled caucus is for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC).
