MISSION

The White Responsibility Teach-In is a national anti-racist conference and global movement designed to identify, analyze, and challenge racism and white supremacy.

THE CONFERENCE

This explosive gathering will feature symposiums and teach-ins with some of the nation’s most notable and celebrated anti-racist educators, school leaders, scholars, religious leaders, and thought leaders. Because anti-racism requires critical examination, thinking and learning, this non-traditional conference aims to also provide a platform for educators, innovators, organizers, creatives, practitioners, and organizational leaders to gather together and explore issues of racism and white supremacy in America and beyond.

WRC is hosted by Boston College High School, in collaboration with national partners dedicated to anti-racist re-imagining, thinking, and learning for future growth and development.

The national teach-in includes pre-conference symposiums, general sessions with notable anti-racist practitioners, and dozens of practitioner-led workshops, extensive group work, and dialogue sessions.

PRESENTERS

ANTI-RACISM VISION & CORE PRINCIPLES

History is important. Anti-racism requires a clear understanding of historical racism and white supremacy. It is crucial to see this history not as separate, but as a foundational element of American history.
 
Racism is the norm. Racism and white supremacy exist today and all members of this society are active participants in it. No exceptions. Owning this truth, and recognizing the presence of racism in ways that may be easy to overlook is crucial.
 
Anti-racism is our responsibility. The work of anti-racism, based in the knowledge of our past and the recognition of our present, requires intentional, deliberate action. We must challenge, check, and change our equity systems and structures for equity every day, and this requires a life-long commitment. It is the work to actively engage in dismantling systems of racism and white supremacy.
