Reflections of PowerShift 09
My first day of PowerShift 09 was excellent! I really enjoyed the two sessions that I attended. The first one was named, ” Racism without Racists.” We discussed the four frameworks of colorblind racism. They are abstract liberalism, naturalization, cultural racism and minimalization.
The second session I attended on Saturday was ” Get Rich or Die Trying.” They talked about fundraising strategies. The two speakers talked about many ways in which we can approach corporations and different groups to raise funds. The main concept about fundraising is that you need to know what you are going to do to then decide who you will be asking for help with funds.
