“Racial Healing: Understanding Racial Identity, Systemic Racism, and How to Become a Racial Ally” – Speakers include Dr. Anneliese Singh; Doug Osborne, M.A., health educator, Southest Alaska Regional Health Consortium, and moderator Jennifer Nash, vice president, corporate solutions and capacity building, Points of Light. Anneliese A. Singh, Ph.D., LPC, author, professor and associate provost for diversity and faculty development at Tulane University, will help raise our race-consciousness by challenging stereotypes, reframing the history of racism and its impact on our lives, and share why healing from racism is an integral part of dismantling it. Attendees will learn strategies for self-reflection, how oppression happens, and the steps to becoming a racial ally. This conversation is based on Dr. Singh’s book, The Racial Healing Handbook: Practical Activities to Help You Challenge Privilege, Confront Systemic Racism, and Engage in Collective Healing. Doug Osborne will share how the community of Sitka, Alaska is applying the learnings and activities presented in Dr. Singh’s book to confront systemic racism and injustice, building a stronger foundation of mutual respect in the community.
