White Supremacy, the 2020 Election & the Pacific Northwest
All seminars are on Thursdays from 4 -5:30 p.m. PST
Free and Open to the Public
White supremacy has played an enormous role in the 2020 election: framing debates, stoking fear, and fomenting division. In the election aftermath, we are creating space to come together, analyze what happened, and think about how to move forward in anti-racist, decolonial solidarity. This series of three webinars will feature scholar-activists from the Pacific Northwest to discuss how white supremacy factored in the 2020 election, and to explore particular impacts in our region. The three post-election webinars will offer perspectives from the areas of White Power & Hate Studies, Indigenous Studies, and Immigration Studies.
