SEED Bay Area Showcase Event and Panel Discussion with Peggy McIntosh
Workshops and dynamic conversations
By Nicole Zhang / Amador Student SEED Leader
On March 11th and 12th, SEED students had the opportunity to attend the SEED Showcase Event and Panel Discussion with Peggy McIntosh. At the SEED Showcase event, students participated in interactive workshops that explored race, gender, ability, diversity, and inclusive families. Through the National SEED Project's methodology, participants acknowledged systems of oppression, power, and privilege without blame, guilt, or shame.
Students also took part in a dynamic conversation on White privilege, race, gender equity, and diversity, featuring feminist, anti-racism activist, and SEED founder Dr. Peggy McIntosh, in conversation with Victor Lewis and Hugh Vasquez from the movie The Color of Fear, and Dr. Brenda Flyswithhawks and Gail Cruise-Roberson, co-directors of the National SEED Project.
SEED students who attended the event in March look forward to inviting more members to participate in the showcase event next year.
