    Everyone, regardless of their race or ability, should have access to natural spaces that are safe and affirming. However, racism and ableism impacts people’s ability to connect with the land in various ways. It is critical that we use an intersectional lens when examining the natural spaces around us including the ones we have created and/or maintain. This presentation will make connections between racial and disability injustices as well as describe the work that needs to be done internally and externally to make sustainable change.

    What does it mean to have privilege? How do your social identities (e.g., race, gender, class, religion, sexuality, etc.) grant or deny you privilege? How do you know when you have it and when you don't? How can we use power and privilege to transform systems that perpetuate inequity? This 2-hour interactive webinar will explore these questions, providing participants with an opportunity to delve into their social identities - a process that reveals how we all have and lack privilege simultaneously.

    For decades, Asian and Asian Pacific Islander Desi American (APIDA) folks have been told that our experiences as a community are not racialized, that our “success” as a community, either academically or professionally makes us a “model” minority, and disqualifies us from experiences with racism and oppression.
