Shipping Cost

As demands for institutional and structural change are being heard around the country, the right wing attacks against “wokeness” are mounting. This strong pushback to antiracist and inclusive education uses the charge of “cancel culture” as an attempt to foment white grievance anxiety and block racial equity efforts.

In this webinar, activist, public intellectual, and professor, Loretta Ross, will discuss how the cries of “cancel culture” by the right wing serve to reassert white supremacist dominance by describing the most privileged as victims. Ross lays out the need for a coordinated and politically astute strategy to counter these attacks on anti-racist education and DEI. She brings decades of experience to a topic so critical to building a unified and strategic movement.
