Race matters: Examining the workings of race and gender in the UN human rights system
The Sexual Rights Initiative (SRI) and the International Movement Against All Forms of Discrimination and Racism (IMADR) invite you to a webinar that will examine the widespread and yet generally unremarked workings of dominant ideologies of race and gender in the UN human rights system. We are interested in examining how the UN can address its own complicity in systemic racism. The webinar will also address the ways in which race is obscured from discussions around gender, including when appropriating concepts that originated in the fight for racial and gender justice by black feminists. Finally, the webinar will recommend measures for challenging and dismantling systemic racism and sexism in the UN and beyond.
