SSW is committed to an intersectional approach to racial justice and asks groups to consider the following questions when arranging events.

  • Who is making decisions about the event you are submitting? 
  • Who is at the table when planning for the event you are submitting? 
  • What does the planning group look like through a racial justice lens? Social justice lens? 
  • Is the event being submitted inclusive and broad? Does it exclude access for some people or groups?
  • Is the planning group transparent?
  • Is there a mechanism to engage the least served in the community?
  • How is information among the planning group and among participants/invitees shared and centralized?
