Racism, Exclusion & Risk: Making Meaning Matters
Tuesday, Dec 01, UTC 17:00 to 17:55
|The widespread prevalence of racism in our society and institutions shapes disaster risks. Mechanisms of differentiation based on race are determinants in the social construction of vulnerability and exposure, perpetuating systemic patterns of exclusion and privilege. By overlooking reality, people and organizations often fail to notice racism, or anticipate the risks this can engender and entrench. We can do something about it… But how to start making sense at the difficult intersection of race and risk?|
Hop into this interactive session with literaryperformer Regie Gibson and risk-taker Janot Mendler de Suarez. Regie will coach “meaning-making” in spoken word with the “HipHop generator” to create short verses expressing lived experience, questions and insights. Lines created in this session will feed into the co-creation of Regie’s UR2020 concluding Spoken Word performance on anti-racism, inclusion and resilience.
This Community Session has been organized by the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery and the World Bank’s Social Sustainability and Inclusion Global Practice.
It builds off a World Bank Anti-Racism workshop developed by World Bank’s Social Sustainability and Inclusion Global Practice.
