Microaggressions : Power, privilege and everyday life.

Microaggressions : Power, privilege and everyday life.

Five-Minute Film Festival: Nine Videos on Kindness, Empathy, and Connection I'd like to offer up a video playlist to remind all of us about the power of empathy, kindness, and human connections. It's always a good time to practice gratitude for the relationships that sustain us all -- for the people who have taught us in a school setting and beyond, and for the young ones we are able to nurture and inspire. I was also thinking about how many of us are living out the paradox of being ever more plugged in, and ever more aware of what's happening in our community via social media platforms, while at the same time, face-to-face interactions are less frequent than ever before. We are in constant touch, but barely touching. Watching these videos made me remember the importance of re-connecting, treating people with kindness and respect, and being generous and compassionate to both loved ones and strangers. Video Playlist: Kindness, Empathy, and Connection Watch the player below to see the whole playlist, or view it on YouTube.

Ce monde sexiste m'épuise C’était une matinée absolument étouffante. Derrière la vitre du bus qui me ramenait de Lille à Paris, bouffée par le mal de mer, je me retenais de rendre mon absence de petit déj’. À côté de moi, un gars matait mes cuisses en me codant en morse avec ses paupières « Grosse pute » ou quelque chose d’approchant. Hésitant à me délivrer de mon mal des transports directement sur son jean, je me suis contenue et je suis sortie, titubante, pour longer les quais de Seine et marcher un peu. Je me suis subitement retrouvée morte de jalousie : j’aurais fait n’importe quoi pour virer ce gros pull qui m’avait bien servi dans le bus de nuit mais qui maintenant me rendait dingue. Ce jour-là, j’ai été prise d’une rage rare pour mon caractère doux : j’en ai eu marre. J’en ai marre de m’expliquer Aujourd’hui je veux que l’exigence de pédagogie change de camp. J’en ai marre de m’excuser Aujourd’hui je veux que les excuses changent de camp. J’en ai marre d’attendre

L'Art et La Manière | Deux écoles, une philosophie C’est complètement dingue. On en apprend tous les jours. Y a le lot des bonnes surprises, qui vous donnent la niaque pour la journée, mais y a aussi le contrecoup parce qu’on choisit pas toujours ce qu’on apprend. Bref, ce mardi de novembre, malgré le froid, un sourire scindait mon visage. Sauf que badaboum, errant avec mon café sur des sites très peu recommandables (oui les sites sérieux, objectifs, impartiaux tout ça tout ça), je tombe sur ce magnifique article. Pourquoi ces journées ? Bon de base, moi je pensais qu’on faisait des « journées internationales » pour des causes, quitte à ce qu’elles soient un peu naïves. Parmi ces journées certaines ont une histoire importante, une histoire de lutte par exemple. Sauf que voilà, dans ma vision un peu angélique, j’avais oublié qu’on pouvait faire des journées de tout et n’importe quoi. Et à tout cela s’ajoute, la journée de l’homme. Les tourments de l’homme moderne Oh que c’est dur d’être un homme ! Il y a plus de suicide chez les hommes ?

Tribal Library Toolkit - home lespiplettespoilues.wordpress Interviews: What Protection Of Traditional Knowledge Means To Indigenous Peoples World Intellectual Property Organization member states in July concluded the biennium work of the committee tasked with finding agreement on international legal tools to prevent misappropriation and misuse of genetic resources, traditional knowledge and folklore. Indigenous peoples and local communities are holders of a substantial part of this knowledge and are demanding that it be protected against misappropriation but also against its use without their consent. Intellectual Property Watch conducted two interviews with different indigenous groups attending the 15-24 July WIPO Intergovernmental Committee on Intellectual Property and Genetic Resources, Traditional Knowledge and Folklore (IGC) (IPW, WIPO, 25 July 2013). The IGC is working on the protection of genetic resources (GR), traditional knowledge (TK), and traditional cultural expressions (TCEs or folklore) against misappropriation mainly by commercial interests.

Terminology So, which terms do I use? Terminology, particularly as it relates to Indigenous peoples, can be tricky to navigate. A term that might be acceptable to some might be offensive to others. Because of this, many people do not feel confident using certain terms when referring to Aboriginal peoples. Fear of using the "wrong" word should never stifle important dialogue and discussions that need to be had. By taking a moment to consider the history of certain terms, it is very possible to learn and be comfortable with which words to use in which contexts. Terms in this section: First Nations | Inuit | Metis | Indian | Inuit | Indigenous | Native | Peoples (plural)To capitalize or not to capitalize? Why does terminology matter? The history of relationships between the Canadian state and Aboriginal peoples is complex, and has oftentimes been paternalistic and damaging. On the other hand, terms can empower populations when the people have the power to self-identify. Aboriginal First Nations Inuit Métis

Children's Books by and About People of Color Documented by the Cooperative Children's Book Center School of Education, University of Wisconsin-Madison (Questions about this information? Contact CCBC Director Kathleen T. Horning) Last updated: May 14, 2019 History In 1985, then-CCBC Director Ginny Moore Kruse was serving as a member of the Coretta Scott King Award Committee, and we were appalled to learn that, of the approximately 2,500 trade books that were published in 1985, only 18 were created by African Americans, and thus eligible for the Coretta Scott King Award. Beginning in 1994 we began also keeping track of the numbers of books we were receiving by Asian/Pacific and Asian/Pacific American, First/Native Nation and Latinx book creators as well. The charts documenting our annual statistics can be found below. What We Receive The CCBC receives most, but not all, of the trade books published annually in the United States by large corporate publishers. We do not include reprints of previously issued books in our count.
