Moving from “Karen” to Committed

Moving From Karen to Committed. A caucus-type panel discussion for female-identified white people who want to work for racial justice.

This is the recording of Moving from “Karen” to Committed, part of the RACISM IS REAL Dialogue Series hosted by Roots of Justice. The panel of white, female-identified people discuss how white women have historically benefited from and perpetuate systemic racism — and what we can bring to the current work and conversation. How do we equip ourselves for dismantling racism? How do we show up for the long-term, systemic work necessary for true racial justice? Caucusing is an integral part of Roots of Justice’s approach to anti-racism organizing; this event was organized and held with accountability and transparency to BIPOC.

Thanks to our panel:
