Please join us for a workshop to raise our awareness of microaggressions on Friday, May 29, 3:30 to 5:30pm at the Ethnic Cultural Center. Everyone is welcome, and refreshments will be provided.
Microaggressions are brief and commonplace daily verbal, behavioral, and environmental indignities, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative slights and insults to the target person or group.
“All of us are socialized into the society, and it really is the height of arrogance or naiveté to think that any of us are immune from inheriting biases that are deeply embedded in this society and culture. They come out in ways that we’re not aware of,”
Sue, KUOW, April 2015.
