Book Club Fundraiser

Xenolearn and The Hague Peace Projects are coming together to bring you The Hague Peace Projects Fundraiser, featuring the book “How to Be an Antiracist” by Ibram X. Kendi! Join us all over the world in this virtual Book Club Fundraiser!

 

Together, we’ll read about racism, antiracism and the power of policy. Where does racism come from? Why does racism keep happening? How can we stop discrimination against people with a different skin colour? How can we build an inclusive society in which behaviour is individualized? How can we shift our focus from a policy of equal opportunity towards equitable results for all?

 

“How to Be an Antiracist” by Ibram X. Kendi is essential reading for any activist, human rights defender of concerned citizen who wants to change the status quo towards a more fair and just world. The Hague Peace Projects is an international human rights organization that values equality and justice for all. As such, this book is perfect for it’s community of Human Rights Defenders, community leaders and social justice advocates.

 

How To Be An Antiracist!

Antiracism is a transformative concept that reorients and reenergizes the conversation about racism—and, even more fundamentally, points us toward liberating new ways of thinking about ourselves and each other. At its core, racism is a powerful system that creates false hierarchies of human value; its warped logic extends beyond race, from the way we regard people of different ethnicities or skin colors to the way we treat people of different sexes, gender identities, and body types. Racism intersects with class and culture and geography and even changes the way we see and value ourselves. In How to Be an Antiracist, Kendi takes readers through a widening circle of antiracist ideas—from the most basic concepts to visionary possibilities—that will help readers see all forms of racism clearly, understand their poisonous consequences, and work to oppose them in our systems and in ourselves.
