Best of N.A.H. March 2017

On the 1st of each month, I share links to some of the best posts from my blog, Notes from an Aspiring Humanitarian.

Here are selected notes from March 2017.

On Linguistic Discrimination

“What’s considered true and ideal is often more of a function of power than universal reality. Prejudice combined with the social power and influence to support it creates the various isms that exist today. In this video produced for everyday feminism, YouTuber, Writer, and Public Speaker Riley J. Dennis speaks on Linguicism.”

katie gordon Speaks on Interfaith Understanding

“Take a listen to this podcast interview on interfaith understanding featuring my colleague katie gordon. Katie produces media on interfaith, spirituality, social justice, public affairs, media literacy, and more.

You can find some of katie’s writings at her blog, katie gordon: none and all.”

Resources for Processing “Get Out”

“Whether you’ve seen it or not at this point, “Get Out” is not a piece of media that should be consumed without discussion and reflection…”

Confronting Systems of Oppression In Higher Education

“Institutions of higher education are not exempt from the impacts of systems of oppression, nor are they blameless in perpetuating those systems. Building more equitable communities requires a commitment to be critical of the structures and ourselves. In recognition of this ongoing work I share two articles for digestion, reflection, and action.”

Trans 101: A Resource for Support

“Trans 101 is a starter pack designed to help support trans people around you!

It’s all about helping people better understand what it means to be trans, and how to make the world and better, safer, happier place for trans and gender diverse people!”

–From the Trans 101 resource page

I'm a Social Justice Educator and Aspiring Humanitarian who is interested in conflict resolution, improving intergroup relations, and building more equitable and inclusive communities. "Notes from an Aspiring Humanitarian" is my blog, where I write about issues of diversity, inclusion, equity, and social justice. By exploring social identities through written word, film & video, and other forms of media, I hope to continue to expand and enrich conversations about social issues that face our society, and to find ways to take social action while encouraging others to do so as well in their own ways.
