Anti-racism for Activists
18. June 2019 od 11:00–15:00
Various expressions of racism are very common in Slovenian politics, the public sphere, media, everyday interactions, and public posts. Tackling racism in Slovenia is very hard because our society is distinctly white and religiously homogeneous, and it sees itself as a society that has not been influenced by colonialism. Racism is deep in every pore of our society and our way of thinking.
Therefore, we have prepared a training workshop for activists and representatives of NGOs together with a European expert and a person who herself faces racism. Together we will dig into and explore anti-racist strategies and practice for NGOs that operate in mostly homogenous, white environments.
Sarah Chander is the Senior Advocacy Officer at the European Network Against Racism (ENAR), the only pan-European network of grassroot anti-racist organisations. Sarah works to advocate for laws, policies, movements, and practices toward racial equality. Sarah is passionate about genuine and unapologetic anti-racist, feminist politics which are fundamentally based on the elimination of all forms of inequality in society. Sarah’s areas of work include equality data collection, hate crimes and speech, diversity and employment, ethnic profiling, and intersectionality. She has previously worked on employment and education policy for the UK government, as well as activism for the end of immigration detention.
