As our first project of the year, Spanish Honor Society is trying to inform the community about Microaggressions.
By definition, a microaggression is “a statement, action, or incident regarded as an instance of indirect, subtle, or unintentional discrimination against members of a marginalized group such as a racial or ethnic minority”.
It is important that we educate ourselves about the use of these microaggressions, and work to rid them from our vocabulary.
Some examples include-
• when a lesbian is told, "You don't look like you're gay!”
• when a black person is told, "You're so lucky to be black — so easy to get into college."
•when a woman is told “you’re smart for a woman.”
... and the list goes on.
To raise awareness, the Spanish Honor Society will be selling T-Shirts and stickers pertaining to microaggressions, and being part of the solution, not the problem. The money we raise will be donated to latino community organizations in need.
We created a google form to keep track of T-Shirt and Sticker orders, so please fill it out if you are interested in buying either!
