Theo E.J. Wilson – Racist Policy As Social Technology

November 16, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm CST

|

Unity of Houston – Pyramid

Hosted by Healing the Heart of America

Cost: $20
Purchase tickets

Many people use the terms “systemic racism” or “institutional racism” – or more recently “racist policy” – to describe the systems of laws, policy and practice that create separation and disadvantage for certain groups.  As part of our HHA work over the last 3 years we have been seeking to understand all aspects of racism and how to heal it. This has included discussing personal unconscious bias but has not yet addressed – until this session – much about the piece of the puzzle related to systemic/institutional racism.  Systems can be hard to see without some help. You may have heard phrases like “the school to prison pipeline” – a description of an interacting set of systems from biased school disciplinary systems to policing to criminal justice and private prisons which have created a perfect storm of negative influences on the lives of people of color.  As we go forward with HHA we will be looking more and more to understand the complex systems which undergird ongoing social injustice.  This session will help us kick off our examination of this important piece of manifesting Beloved Community in our city, state, nation and beyond.

Theo E.J. Wilson is a speaker, poet, actor, author and one of the most important voices for justice and equality of his generation.

Online ticket sales will end at 2:30 on November 15.
