The Sexual Rights Initiative and the International Movement Against All
Forms of Discrimination and Racism (IMADR) invite you to:
This webinar 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 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.
- measures for challenging and dismantling systemic racism and sexism in the UN and beyond.
