Racial Microaggressions in Latine and Black Communities Workshop

 

Microaggressions are brief verbal or non-verbal insults towards a disadvantaged group of people. Latinos/x often experience microaggressions, intentionally or unintentionally, on a daily basis at their workplace, school, and communities. This session considers how microaggressions manifest themselves among Latinos/x living in the U.S. and how they affect their mental health. 

By the end of the workshop, participants will have

  • Identified the different types of racial microaggressions in their environment 
  • Examined the effects of microaggressions on mental health
  • Learned techniques on how to respond when exposed to a microaggression

You took what might seem like a small subject and delved into it from so many angles. It was a totally worthwhile topic and your direction was excellent. You have a gift for leading these types of workshops and conversations.

I appreciate this topic very much. I didn’t realize there were so many different kinds of microaggressions and I had never heard many of the terminology to describe it, so I appreciate you educating me. It was a reflective experience for me since I have both experienced microaggressions and unknowingly/unintentionally done some as well.

You as a facilitator made it a safe space for all of us where we could openly share different views and have discussions even if it was uncomfortable at times.
