BLIND SPOT curates a content-rich environment to practice critical dialogues about oppression. Our salons are a series of facilitated discussions where videos spark small- and large-group conversations that lead participants to build new skills and strategies to confront systemic racism and implicit bias. Participants articulate their thoughts and feelings about race, recognize systems and ideologies that contribute to racism and analyze their own actions as contributing to or working against systemic oppression.

Regardless of each person’s primary identities, how we are perceived also intersects with our race, gender, sexual orientation, and a myriad of other characteristics and histories that make up who we are.  The deeper we understand these intersections, and become skilled at talking about the issues, the more effective (or impactful) community members - indeed, stronger collaborators - we will be.
