Calling In the Call Out Culture

October 10 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm EDT


What is Calling Out? Calling someone out is the public practice of criticizing a person or a group for something they’ve said or done that you think is politically incorrect. We all call people out by naming instances or patterns of oppressive behaviors and language used by others to seek accountability. Calling In means learning and selecting practices that invite people in for conversations with people who have different ideas about social justice work. Calling In requires a commitment to recognize and support each other’s strengths, and to consciously help expand another’s perspectives. It is about working together to find and reach shared goals for building a human rights movement.
