To fully understand structural forms of oppression and to build liberatory futures, we need to understand colonization.

Colonization is not just an event of the past, it is ongoing, and the legacies of colonialism continue to have serious and devastating social, political, environmental, psychological, and economic impacts.

The genocide in Palestine has brought into sharp focus the urgent need for us to develop a deeper understanding of US imperialism and its consequences both nationally and globally. Our DEI and racial equity work must be informed by how struggles for equity and liberation across the world are deeply interconnected.

For too long DEI and racial equity work hasn’t employed an explicit anti-colonial and anti-imperial lens. 

This means we have to talk about colonization and power –our personal power as individuals and the power residing within our organizations, big and small, nonprofit and for profit. How can we best leverage it to embed an anti-colonial approach in our work?


  • What exactly is colonialism and imperialism + different types of colonization
  • How our organizations uphold and exacerbate colonial power structures
  • Why adding an anti-colonial / anti-imperial perspective to your DEI and racial equity work is a necessity
