“Everyday slight, putdown, indignity, or invalidation unintentionally directed toward a marginalized group.” So-defined microaggressions have been the subject of recent and prolific media attention, countless internet memes, and even locally documented by students at aMinnesota college.
To explore the myriad microaggressions that diverse communities encounter on a regular basis, LOCUS invites you to a Microaggressions Mini Film Festival. We’ll connect with each other over a light meal, watch YouTube videos (and welcome your nominations to locus.mn[at]gmail.com), and discuss the impact of microaggressions and our personal and collective efforts to navigate and combat them. Join us!
