With an American political system so starkly divided between Black and White, Non- Black People of Color operate at a complicated intersection of privilege and oppression. The racial/ethnic communities of Non-Black People of Color are some of the most culturally and linguistically diverse, as well as most economically and politically polarized. American immigration policies and race ideologies have placed us in an adjacency to whiteness that gives us relative privilege and power compared to our Black siblings, which has in part contributed to prevalent anti-blackness in our own communities and perhaps ourselves. Holding this relative privilege and power, many of us with a racial justice mindset may feel a burden to take on even more to support our Black siblings in fighting racism and anti-blackness. Simultaneously, we are trying to balance making sense of and healing from our own experiences of discrimination, ancestral traumas, and internalized oppression. Join this affinity group to discuss the unique experiences and needs of Non-Black planners of color, come together to heal in community, and discuss how to use our relative privilege to take action towards anti-racism and racial justice.
