Responding to White Supremacy in Youth Work

Mondays, 6-8 p.m.: 1/22, 2/5, 2/19, 3/5, 3/19, 4/2, 4/16, 4/30
University of Minnesota - St. Paul Campus, Peters Hall, Room 202, 1404 Gortner Ave.


This seminar will explore how and why, in this current moment, some youth are choosing to adopt white supremacist ideas and behaviors.  As class we will discuss how this phenomenon shows up in our daily practices; research class identified areas of interest; and work to understand how we might build our skills sets and knowledge base to better respond and support youth in our community.  The first weeks of the seminar will focus on what questions and practices could help youth workers engage in this work and the final weeks will focus on how youth workers can support youth who are organizing to promote social justice.

Facilitator:  Jena Brune and Emily Krumberger, YDL Graduate Students
