Feedback Form for Homework Set #1 (LASNNY)
Thanks for doing your Homework Set #1! By now you've watched the video on "The Story of Access" by Nelson Stanley about the history of racial segregation and violence from the Civil Rights Movement thru present day, and you've read an article on how to talk about racism. At this point, we invite you to answer the following questions to reflect on what you've learned and how it applies to your work at LASNNY.
All responses are completely confidential and anonymous!
This will probably take 10-30 minutes, depending on how thorough you want to be. There is no way to save a draft of your responses in this form, so if you can't do it all in one sitting please save your responses elsewhere and paste them in this form when you're ready.
Thanks, and we look forward to seeing you soon!
Story of Access: Your Response
In five words or less, how would you describe your physical, emotional, or other reactions to the documentary film directed by Stanley Nelson?
Story of Access: Stereotype Threat
Stanley Nelson's video highlights the implicit bias and dangers targeting people of color just for existing in and navigating through the public sphere. One way we see this play out is in "stereotype threat," which is a situation in which people are or feel themselves to be at risk of conforming to stereotypes about their social group (e.g., being perceived as untrustworthy). What was one example of stereotype threat mentioned in the film that stood out to you or spoke to you most, and why?
Story of Access: Legal Services Work
Drawing from your own experiences and from what you learned by watching the film, think critically and share about how structural, organizational, and interpersonal racism impact your efforts (individually and as LASNNY) to provide free legal services to low-income people of color.
Let's Talk About Racism: Getting Started
How much do you need to know about race, privilege, oppression, racism, white supremacy, or anything else before you would feel confident engaging in meaningful and thoughtful conversations about race equity? (Check all that apply)
Nothing but my gut instincts about the topic -- it's not rocket science, after all
Nothing but my curiosity and willingness to learn -- I can start from scratch and jump right in
The basics -- if I can get the terms and definitions down, I can muddle through the rest
A lot -- I don't want to sound ignorant or be judged, so I feel like I should know a lot before even bothering to engage with others about it
PhD level knowledge (which might be impossible, so I don't even try)
